Suddenly popping out his head
Like a turtle; peeking at the flowers
Surroundings then declaring his house.

As I walked home with my son in my husband’s arms, he suddenly peeped at a nearby condominium. He was observing the flowers, plants and buildings. Out of the blue, he declared that the condominium was his house. Finally, he replied that it was not his house.
“Popping out his head across the fence” was the first words came to me. But I choose to express it in haiku rather than free verse. I want to limit my words limitation as a challenge to improve my creative writing.
With feet rested onto mattress
Two hands on floor; inhaling, exhaling heavily
Head rolls up and down.

In the dark warm night
Ocean’s waves burst against the side rocks
As chipmunks chewed acorns onshore.

The image came portraying what was in my dream. Then I wrote it down.
Confidence is torn to pieces
As the wind blows the pieces away
Scattering it into the chute.
