When My Son Cries


when my son cries
even the harvest spider
covers its ears

Not that harvest spiders have ears, but, when I wrote this haiku in summer, the harvest spider nearby to where we were playing in the back garden certainly looked perturbed. If it had ears, they would be covered.

In fact, he's not crying in the photograph, either, it being more of a "Mother, can't I please have some milk? This loser doesn't even have mammary glands."

"This loser doesn't even have mammary glands."

He'll be grateful for this later on! :D

Well, I suppose that moobs are always a possibility...
