Tears and wine

Children’s whines trigger

The calmest parents warm tears

Soothed by well-chilled wine

This is in response to Ronovan’s Haiku challenge 61: Tears and Wine

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published four books - Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle, My Father and Other Liars, Salisbury Square and Buster & Moo. In addition I have published three anthologies of short stories and a memoir of my mother. More will appear soon. I will try and continue to blog regularly at geofflepard.com about whatever takes my fancy. I hope it does yours too. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    One of my worst failings as a parent was when I reviewed my son’s homework and spilled a glass of red wine on it. He was so embarrassed to turn it in and his sassy then-teenaged sisters started teasing me, “Wine makes Mommy clever!” I think the memory you sparked fits the theme!
