Now I’m a Poet…

So I write Avery a lot. She’s in boot camp and I figure letters from home are cool to get. I find that there are only so many things to write about in a letter. She knows that I miss her and the life at home is the same as it ever was.

So what’s the next step? Compose a damned haiku! It’s just common sense…. Ok, here it is…

I’m missing my girl
I send her my heart in words
Letters aren’t enough

You might think that this is all fun and games, but I couldn’t remember the correct syllable count for each line. Then there was the nightmare scenario of trying to figure out if ‘aren’t’ was one syllable or two. Being a dad is hard
