    Succinct, yet feels gentle and gracious. Very clever to have written this as a mother's dialogue with her offspring. You've nailed it Daver, the listening part is often what is needed the most. Hope you're feeling your perky self! Love, Mikki

    A very unorthodox haiku... but really engaging! You captured the personality and warmth of mothers everywhere in just three short lines... good work!

    Beautiful write, Daver. So simple yet so deep. There's nothing like the love of a mother.
