You are here

Happy Haiku*

Virginie Colline

popsicle kisses
the sweet sixteen is laughing
on the Ferris wheel

insouciant hours
crazy hopscotch and leapfrog
in the spring garden

silence on the beach
your sky vast and crystal clear
my heart wide open

a smile of bonheur
the French word for happiness
blooms like a flower
