I have four sons. The rhythm of our years has been: closer than close; moving off running back for more closer than close; being close while practicing standing; standing alone, shrugging away "baby" kisses; standing prideful in teen years; watching them as they move into their own lives; they call sporadically; their lives become settled and more regular; calls come to share a joke, a thought, a question, the stuffs of their lives. Closer than close - friends and sons now. Lots of joy ahead, californiadreamin'. enjoy - your haiku says so much. You are indeed a writer. Wilbur

I don't know that much about haiku, but it was certainly moving
