a story in haiku

After the fall storm
comes a rainbow and the smiles
stay / don’t hide from us

Laugh at what they taught
hear my verbs and protect us
be father to all.

Stop gambling your seeds
for a night to feel human
let divineness shine.

Open / not enter
love your womb and its’ future
don’t be forgotten.

I preserve my world
in journals so my children
can eat without me.
