Haiku Friday: Silence is Golden
Creatures: mermaids, unicorns,
Elves, and the quiet voice.
Lots of chances to
Practice — waiting rooms, weddings,
Lines, planes, you name it.
A skill in progress,
Like drinking from a cup and
Mommy’s on the phone.
Quiet, all right, guys? “HE PUSHED MEEEEEE!”
My stare speaks volumes.
Baby’s asleep. Shhhhhh!
Let’s not wake him. And no loud
goldfish crunches please.
“A TRUCK BOOK!” Yes, but
Whisper in the library,
Okay? … “Trucks, Mom, trucks!”
You’re doing such a
Good job using your quiet voice!
Keep it up, kiddos!
“YAY! WE DID IT! YAY!”
They are proud. And loud. So loud.
We’ll get it next time.
Has your child found that elusive quiet voice? Or maybe a unicorn?
