les petits joies dans la vie (haiku)

Written to Carpe Diem’s Joy of living:

she and I
in front of the fireplace
enjoying life

les joies de vivre

sunset promenade
walking hand in hand
muted applause
butterfly wings 
flutter on his hand
they shudder
baby’s first steps
proud parents cheer,
tears in their eyes

      1. You’re welcome 🙂 and you are doing that with you haiku moments series which I am enjoying. I’m hoping to get back to a regular schedule so I can read them everyday.


      2. Thank you 🙂 I just put out my Christmas/Epiphany stories, They are free to read through kindle unlimited on amazon and I think they are $2.99 to buy. I’m working on a print edition and audio version as well 🙂 So there will soon be many ways to enjoy my content and it’ll be ultra portable! 🙂


      3. I have posts on my blog. The book was published to kindle on 1/3 and I reformatted about 4 times after that because their emulator didn’t match what I saw on my phone. I need to get a kindle. Here’s the link to the kindle book: http://www.amazon.com/Stars-Angels-Sing-Breaker-Novella-ebook/dp/B01A40E13W/ref=sr_1_5?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1451834132&sr=1-5&keywords=stars+and+sing
        the print edition I’m still formatting. It’s 90% formated. I’m just working on the last two chapters and dealing with ISBN issues. I apparently bought the wrong king and now I’m in the process of getting a refund and purchasing the correct kind. Oh well. You live and learn and I wanted to learn on a much shorter piece before I embark on this for my first novel, which stars the same characters as the novella but is prose rather than prose poems. 🙂


      4. I just bought it. In Canada it’s $4.13 which is still an amazing deal. I must pick your brain someday when I am ready to publish several haiku books…I`m ready and it’s time so my kids will have something when I’m in neverneverland.

      5. thank you! You are welcome to pick my brain. Publishing to kindle was not that difficult to do. There’s not a lot of formatting involved because the reader can change font size, etc on their device. Formatting for print does involve a lot of work though but it’s worth it I think.
