Sonnet to the Baby Sister

The youngest sister in the family
Has always known the joy of having more:
The parents’ attention for the baby
And stuff from two sisters who came before.

It wasn’t always easy for the rest:
The elder two who hardly had a say.
At being cute, you always were the best,
And never seemed to fail to get your way.

Yet ever since the day you came along,
You’ve blessed us all, a gift from God above.
You grace us with your energy and song,
And fill our lives with never-ending love.

So Happy Birthday to my baby sis!
With love from your big sister, with a kiss!


Happy Birthday to my awesome baby sister! Keep on being the wonderful person you are! I love you!

Independence Day

For over two hundred years,
Our country has been free, the
United States of America,
Representing a beacon of light
To all those seeking a brighter future and
Hope for a brand new start.

Opportunities abound in this land of
Freedom for all who come with a dream.

Join the celebrations tonight
Under the Star-Spangled Banner!
Land of the free, home of the brave,
You will always be my home!


Yes, no matter how crazy the world gets, a part of me will always believe in this idealized image of my beloved America. Happy Independence Day to all my American family, friends, and readers! May you all have a blessed Fourth of July weekend!

Sonnet to the Middle Sister

Only the middle sister truly knows
The challenges of being two in one:
A mentor to the youngest as she grows,
And scapegoat for the eldest to have fun.

You always know the perfect thing to say
To make us laugh until the point of tears.
You’ve cared for us in each and every way
And brought us so much joy throughout the years.

And neither of us know where we would be
Without you there to make life such a game.
No matter where you stand among us three
We both adore and love you just the same.

So Happy Birthday, Sister Number Two!
Love always, the big sister who loves you!


Happy Birthday to my awesome little sister! Keep on being the amazing person you are! I love you!

The Most Important Man

The most important man
That a girl will ever know
Is the man who gives her everything
To help her learn and grow.

The most important smile
That a girl will ever see
Is of proud encouragement
For the woman she can be.

The most important words
That a girl will ever hear
Are the first to say she’s beautiful,
Intelligent and dear.

The most important lesson
That a girl will ever learn
Is that he’s the only man
To whom she can always turn.

He loves his daughter dearly,
Gives her everything he can.
And I wouldn’t be this woman
If it weren’t for that man.

I don’t know how to thank him
For the things he always did
To give me the greatest life
Ever since I was a kid.

But I know he’ll always be there
To catch me if I fall.
And of all the men I know,
He’s the greatest one of all.

So thanks for being awesome
And for everything you do!
Happy Father’s Day to you, Dad,
From a daughter who loves you!


Happy Father’s Day to my amazing dad! Thank you for all the love and support you’ve given me my whole life! I love you!

Tease If You Please (Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge #151)

Every time you tease
I can’t help but laugh out loud
To please your humor

Please forgive my tricks
But I just could not resist
Teasing you that way

Tell me if you please
Why I can’t stop smiling now
At the way you tease


My responses to Ronovan WritesWeekly Haiku Challenge #151: Please & Tease. For once, I’m actually posting in the same week! Hope you enjoy the haikus! Thanks for the prompt, Ronovan!
