The Haiku Challenge 2012

The Haiku Challenge 2012 – Day 21 – Dedication

It feels as though Day 21 has arrived too quickly! Today’s prompt is “write a haiku based on the theme:
To my mom 
A portrait of love 
Embodiment of all wise 
And wonderful things 
My mentor and friend 
She steered me on the right path 
Inspiring my growth 
To my pressure cooker 

Without you, my life 
Would be difficult. Cooking
Tasty food a chore 
To my spectacles 
You gave me vision 
To see the world around me 
In its full glory 

Written for The Haiku Challenge 2012 – Day 21 – February 21st – Theme: Dedication
