    Sleepless nights are what we all owe to our babies. Keep the chair rocking and the mamma rolling while the baby's smiling to the first sunbeams, Charming Charmaine! It's our fate and we love it! Light and Love, Hanitra

    If the reason for sleepless nights is this, then bring it on-- I had a different mindset with just reading your title and then I read your senryu-- and it made me smile, imagining you with beautiful Christina. Beautiful mother and child! Thank you for dropping by my poem, dear Charma! Sending you and the sweet one lots of hugs.

    I can think of no better use of a sleepless night. A lot of feeling conveyed in such few words.
