Haiku for You

I’ve been celebrating our grandson, Evan with you via prose. Here are a few little haiku verses that cast our relationship in a more poetic vein. Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry that requires a 5-7-5 syllable structure (5 on the first line, 7 on the second, 5 on the third). Traditional haiku follow a theme of the seasons or nature. Mine expand on those themes a bit!
