Soft, supple, solid –

Her love is felt a fresh wind –

Hinamatsuri

-a haiku poem

Hinamatsuri also called “Girl’s Day” in Japan is a annual celebration that honors the daughters¬†in families. In writing this I thought of the feeling of holding our daughter that has been with us since birth along with an insightful comment by one of our favorite¬†preschool teachers about the energy our daughter brings to those around her, “a fresh wind”.
