Poetry Month Mash-Up: Day Eight



H is for Haiku and Hero

Today on her blog, Rena Traxel has challenged us to write a Haiku about our childhood hero.  Just to refresh your memories - a Haiku is a three-line poem in which the first line has five syllables, the second has seven and the third has five again.  You can link them together to tell a story.  


It took me less than a second to think of my childhood hero - here's my Haiku about her:

                                                                                         

My Mom 

I have a hero
And it's someone you should know.
My hero's my mom!

She raised four children,
On her own, without much help
Not an easy feat.

No cape and no mask
Only the power of love
To shield us from harm.
