#Haiku of Life 1972 and 1973 (as part of #NaPoWriMo)


In a incubator
you spent your first six weeks
struggling to breath.

(When I was born in 1972, it was touch and go for the 3 months
I was going to live)


Crying you didn’t stop
when you saw an Elephant
that very first time.

(Growing up I always had a love of going to the Zoo, 
although the first time nearly put that to bed)
