National Poetry Month Haiku #3: Smiles

Have you ever noticed no matter your mood, a smile can make you smile? Or laughter can make you laugh? Nothing brings a smile to my face faster than a smile from one of my grandkids. 🙂

What better topic to write about to celebrate National Poetry Month? I’d love to read your haiku about smiles!

The Great Wave

The following video announces the British Museum‘s upcoming June 4 Hokusai documentary. It reminded me of a haiku I wrote several years ago, inspired by Hokusai’s “The Great Wave Off Kanagawa.”

wave moving, growing
excitement building, rushing
calm, peaceful water
