A Fresh Wind

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”.
