So you were one of a set of triplets or had two brothers? Siblings do let each other go, hopefully unharmed, and so do parents and children.

Love that you took the memory of your children and not just your own.

Glad they made it over the wall.

All entwined…only as a mother can feel 😉

It is beautiful when you can let each other go with love unharmed, they are blessed with a father like you. I love your closing haiku too and the phrase ‘grow over the wall’ especially.

This is so tender-loving, ZQ 🙂 As a mother of three sons, I am moved beyond words by the imagery and feelings you have evoked with this haibun.

Grown over the wall…..a lovely description of your sons.

Very sweet…as it should be as I children “grow over the wall.”
