Done for Haiku Horizons. And A Prompt Each Day. Inspired by the words: Follow and Mirror. (Nothing personal, folks 🙂 )

Nana, thank you.
This is so funny, I was just talking to my mom an hour ago the topic was “how my dad stayed wrinkle-free till the end” . He was 88. The universe is a prankster:) Very nicely done!
Thank you Jazzy. Your dad must have been blessed with fine skin texture. Remarkable. 🙂
If you here my mom tell the story you would Crack up! He laid hands on her, she gave him 8 stitches on his face, (if you know what I mean), and there was no evidence of it anywhere. LOL. Have a great day.
Oh Jazzy, you are cracking me up. 🙂 This is classic! 🙂
Funny how we often don’t think we look anything like our parents.
We have a relative who is so adamant that she doesn’t look like her mother or daughter. And yet at the same age… even the grand-daughter looked like the grandmother.
I like how my grandmother’s and mother looked – They looked contented and happy.
Those lines – on your face – in my house we call them ‘laugh lines’. 🙂
LOL, Jules. I look like my father each passing day. My mannerisms are my mum’s. As for the wrinkles, I think hers are better at age 79. 🙂
oh so true
🙂 Thanks Candy.

There is a really feeling of love for your mother in this haiku.
That’s true, Suzanne. She lives with me and I love her dearly. 🙂

Yes, I have a lot. But the uploading on the blog is the problem. 🙂
Sigh Celestine, especially when that face in the mirror is your own.
