the childless woman
so many different hobbies
no dirty diapers

— Today’s haiku is a little contrary. The example haiku by Basho over at Carpe Diem is very sweet, and like many things about childless women, it portrays that childless women are missing something. For some childless women this is no doubt true. On the other hand, others are childless by choice. I am one of those. I am glad there are people who want to have kids and who enjoy the process, but I am certainly not one of them, so I thought I would show another side.
