Images of Happiness

The theme for this weeks prompt for Poetry Potluck Monday was Moods, Feelings and Emotions.  I have thought about the miriad of emotions that could be covered and came up with this short poem, a haiku on happiness...

Images of Happiness

Fluttering butterfly wings in the breeze,
Polinating flowers for the birth of new blossoms,
Timid smiles bursting with colors of joy.

wonderful poem. you have said a lot with only a few words. i am wondering how this is haiku. the feel is haiku but it does not follow the typical syllabic pattern. not a criticism, just wondering. the writing is great regardless.

take care ~700
