Magpie 31 Haiku for a blissful weekend

My son and i went camping for the weekend. My wife was overjoyed. How beautiful - father and son bonding; how even more beautiful - no husband, no son for a whole weekend. For an expanded story of the weekend and some photos see Giraween Connections.

Haiku for a blissful weekend I

mother's tears of joy
flowing behind drawn curtains
boys gone a-camping


Haiku for a blissful weekend II

A wife's guilty smile
beaming behind sad drapes
husband and son gone

Haiku for a blissful weekend III

dad and son bereft
a weekend without mother
forgot to say goodby

I remember those blissfully quiet weekends....no cooking, no washing, sleeping late and peacefulness.

I hope you and your son had just as much fun as your wife.
