I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. true that…working with early childhood development concepts with several of my cases right now an teaching parents how to poarent at different stages


  2. Character forming is right: I see so many children who have had disfunctional start in life carry lifelong consequences around with them..
    Lovely haikus, Denise.


    • It is so unfair that children have to lug baggage around with them due to parents’ failure to raise them correctly in their early years. Thanks, Kate.


  3. Beautiful expressions of childhood. And the graphic you chose is perfect. Thanks, Adee.

  5. True indeed. I always admire people who take a hiker – I mean do a Haiku, as I don’t even know how to start.


    • Bwahahaha, Col. I avoid hikers at all costs, 🙄 but I must say I had to google Haiku initially to find out just what it was and, I don’t really feel comfortable writing them yet… 😦


  6. Lovely haikus, they sum childhood up really well.


  7. unfortunately with the rise of video games came the lack of children playing in groups and interacting with each other.


    • I think video games have taken a lot away from the natural development of children. Admittedly they have also added a lot, but overall I think children are the poorer for them. Thanks for the visit Otin. 🙂


  8. Nice contribution to Sideview;s weekend theme 🙂 and so true, Adeeyoyo – have just read Malcolm Gladwell’s article ‘Damage’ which discusses the critical importance of being afforded a safe and secure childhood, not only for the child themselves, but for society-at-large as well.


  9. i like the balance
