A family praising


A gather of hands
A feasting at dinnertime
Hear the sounds of smiles

    Hi, Laura. I haven't seen your poetry posted lately, and I really have missed it. Your lovely Haiku is so touching. I feel the warmth of a close family enjoying dinnertime...a feast of hearty food...yes, I can hear those smiles! I hope you are enjoying your Thanksgiving Holiday with your family. I wish you the best in everything you do. Smile, God loves you. Peace and Love, Andrew.
