The exercise:

Two Haiku Tuesday would like this week's haiku to be about: sound. Or sounds. Whichever.

Went back up to Penticton today for a couple more appointments. Got Max's hearing tested (passed with flying colours) and visited with the midwives. He's almost back to his birth weight now - if he keeps gaining at this rate, that should happen either Friday or Saturday.

Going to try to get a few things done around here tomorrow. We'll see how that pans out.

Late evening is turning into a very fussy time for Max. Seeing as this is normally when I do my writing, I'm thinking I'm going to have to make an adjustment, at least for now. Going to aim to get my blog writing done before dinner tomorrow.

Mine:

The house falls silent,
relief descends like snow; the
shrieking baby sleeps.

*     *     *

A voice in the dark,
whispering words of comfort.
Leave me alone, ghosts.

Heh, well children adding to a family always means some degree of change, and I suspect you'll keep adjusting around Max for a while yet :) In good ways, of course!
I think I prefer your second haiku today, but I can hear the feelings behind the first!

Sound
Quiet bus journey
Spoilt by woman talking loud
It's always the same

---------------
Fishing in the sound
Carp nod their heads, swim away
Another day's catch

I got sick this week, but I'm better today. Mostly. I loved the lions prompt, and that's awesome about the cell phone bill.

Just 1 haiku today, one guess as to why. :)
------------
Kids off school, yelling
Resounds from upstairs -- they're fine,
Right? I'm sure they are.

A bump in the night
My slumber interrupted
They have come for me

Screech across the board
Anger rushes through my soul
Those nails shall be cut

Greg - yeah, many more adjustments to come for sure.

Like the twist on the prompt in your second one, and can relate all too well to your first.

Morganna - glad you're feeling better!

Yeah, totally fine. Not worth getting up to check :)

Anonymous - ugh, your second one sends shivers down my spine. Always hated that noise.
