Subtle Change


Skin stretched taut
Harboring the life beneath
Each day subtle change


The room stands empty
Colour peels off aging walls
My paintbrush beckons

It's been quite a while since I was pregnant but still your haiku resonated with me as though it were yesterday...thanks for the lovely reminder.
Also, the contrast of the second one is terrific and written so cleverly.

Great job! The first is so immediate and memorable. I love the image of skin harboring life.

Lovely! Reminds me of a ku I wrote based on a dream:

little footprints raise
on my friend's pregnant belly
a new path

Such fabulous haiku! I remember well that time of pregnancy. And a room needing paintedis a constant attraction for me - I'm always thinking about changing a room's look and paint is the easiest way.
