A Plea to the Younger

Elder musters spunk

In a snappy hat or a

Witty turn of phrase.

Don't dim her spirit,

Make her small with baby talk 

While looking past her.

She is whole and real.

One wild life not yet complete,

One heart that can heal.

Your first haiku made me smile, then the second one broke my heart. Nice work!
