Skirting The Issue

The apple doesn’t

fall far from the tree. After

being told by school

officials that she must wear

a skirt or dress on

days her basketball team played,

my almost six-foot,

pants-loving granddaughter did

exactly what she

was told and paired her long skirt

 with matching basketball shoes.

  1. How fun! I had never heard of a naga-uta before. I love haiku and the freedom (oddly enough) that writing within a form promotes. I am so glad I stumbled upon your site. (I looked under tags for “poetry:) I will be back.
