first kiss…

first kiss

morning doves takes flight
kissing the sky with their wings
sky’s cloudy cheeks blush

  1. The slp stands for Speech and Language Pathologist…my career in a previous life. 🙂 …But, yes a couple of folks have come up with some original names for those initials…Oh also Bea In Your Bonnet has already been published.


  2. This is a lovely haiku. You do marvelous things with photos Charles, things that always amaze. I have a question for you. Now, I am not being rude at all, but curious. One becomes familiar with those whom one sees on line, and as a result develops a familiarity. Does anyone ever call you Slip? I don’t think Charles when I see you but instead I think Slip adding a letter to your initials. Just curious. And I always enjoy your work and seeing you.
