Easter Haiku

Incense wafts amongst the silent crowd a loud sneeze out eggless breakfast in her little backyard a yellow chick tweets last day of lent sharing pea-soup with a fly Good Friday the clack of rosary-beads in the village square

You provide us with four delightful images, Charm. The majority based on a Maltese ambience. I can imagine Sheila sneezing at the smell of incense:) I hope you had a lovely Easter. Regards // paul

Indeed, Charmaine. To me it feels like a half-silent world with images slowly and inexorably gaining color.

This was really nice Charmaine and funny at the same time. I like how you expanded on the Haiku you posted the other day with the rosary beads. And the fly in the soup is hilarious. All of it was great

This even Christina used pink rosary-beads for the first time for the stations of the cross..At times we do them on Good Friday in the morn..but this year we did them few hours ago.:)

The sneezing one was very embarassing..but Im sensitive to incense or scenting magic trees in cars :)....I really did sneeze in church when everyone was so silent ..grr:)

The pea-soup one is a true story..Happened few yrs ago at Marks and Spencer..It was first day of lent not last..I ordered plain soup..the only thing I was going to eat..since I was fastening from solids..and this silly fly landed in my soup..It was time for me to leave..and remained Without the soup.:).Glad you enjoyed.
