We’re celebrating Mother’s Day for the entire week of May 8 through May 14. We are running one haiku each day, from Blowing Up Balloons: baby poems for parents, by Vanessa Proctor and Gregory Piko, longtime Australian poets.
Proctor has two school-aged children, and Piko has two grown sons and two small grand-children. Proctor is the President of the Australian Haiku Society and lives in Sydney, and Piko lives about 300 km away in the town of Yass.
