Haiku Friday - where to kiss the baby

The soft rounded calf
Her wee Volkswagen Bug feet
The tips of her toes

Her forehead is smooth
no need to kiss worry lines
when we say goodbye

The base of her head
meets the top of the neck with
a sculpted hollow

Her downy soft hair
Tickles my nose when she sleeps
Tucked under my chin

Kiss her open mouth
and she laughs herself silly
then smooch on her neck

The best placed kiss
lands anywhere when she strokes
my face with her hand

See A Mommy Story to link to more haiku. Enjoy your weekend. I recommend cheese toast.
