Haiku Friday: Simple Beauty

On this warm spring day
she is a beauty in red
sitting in the grass

Her eyes pierce your soul
rarely a smile from her lips
always serious

To play along for Haiku Friday, follow these steps:

1. Write your own haiku on your blog. You can do one or many, all following a theme or just random. What’s a haiku, you ask? Click here.

2. Sign the Mister Linky below or at Jennifer’s blog with your name and the link to your haiku post (the specific post URL, not your generic blog URL). DON’T sign unless you have a haiku this week. If you need help with this, contact Jennifer or myself.

3. Pick up a Haiku Friday button to display on the post or in your sidebar by clicking the button at the top.

REMEMBER: Do not post your link unless you have a haiku this week! We will delete any links without haiku!

    Have you ever seen any art by Eloise Wilkin? Lots of old-fashioned children’s books were illustrated by her. Anyhow, she portrayed babies in their sweet, serious plumpness, very much like your daughter. 🙂
