happy snaps – easter haiku

i snap happiness
and in an easter egg-hunt
i happen on it.


i happen on it
like an egg under a bush
in springtime hatches.


snip-snap-happy now
a shutter on opening
floats in reflections.


float on in a flood
sun seasoned petals swirling
butterfly wings past.


i happen on you
no matter the season when
happiness i swap.

  1. Oh, these are lovely and on first reading are perfectly formed in egg-like aesthetic smoothness for this sunny and relaxing Easter weekend.

    On second reading there’s a slight melancholy… but that of a pleasing nature, rather than the darker variety, and which perfectly parallels the very nature of Easter As We Know It… or at least ought to.
