Haiku, can you?

I found this on a blog and thought it was interesting as it relates to so many going through infertility. Some are funny, others poignant, and others still painfully honest.

I submitted mine:

Hope, dream, miracle
Pregnant pause no longer ours
Two lines equal three

Of course it seems more like it's coming from a couple who is finally pregnant, but as a surrogate, I feel this just as passionately for anyone who is wanting to have a child of their own. I was in the bathroom this morning and saw the thank you note from Hanne & Tommy after we had the "positive beta" news (it's slipped into my mirror as a constant reminder). It inspired me to create the haiku above. Give it a try!
