Here is the new one.
Here are the loving old ones.

Precious baby boy

Wondering who it might be,

Sound waves show us you -
Silent movements, tiny hands.
Soon we'll hear you breathe.

Together we reach -
Your feet press against our hands.
May we stay so close.

What is a haiku?

As you may know, Haiku has been used for centuries to illustrate a single poignant moment or thought experienced by a traveler and is characterized by three lines of poetry with 5, 7 and 5 syllables respectively. Haiku can be humorous, and often features a description of a single sound, moment, or emotion.

Three miles and shin splints.
An hour standing and aching.
Son, get your mom's feet.
-- Marc

Frances has a glow.
More proof that archivists know
How to store things well.
-- Chris

Mighty baby kick!
Frances suspects Marc snuck in
A tiny keyboard.
-- Chris
