I would like to dedicate this to my Ladybug. Thank you for taking this journey with me.
It is said that a haiku isn't birthed until someone else loves it. That statement is my motivation for every poem that I write. I feel that if I love the poem that someone else in turn will love it as well. Several of these poems that I included in this collection are ones that were "born" in class. The other selections that I included are ones that were "born" outside of class by others. As you read this collection may the following poems be "born" again.
family bonding time
2 more acres to go
These three were my favorite poems because I felt a connection with them. I really enjoyed all of them, but these were my favorite because I could relate to them the most. I like poems about family and life. I’m happy that I can help with my Mom’s homework because she always helps me with mine. —Lauryn Imani Rowe-Adams
