Day 15: This image is the prompt for today’s haiku

Beauty lies

A smile so cheerful
like a lotus found in slush
truly makes my day

Inner beauty speaks
through the heart with a sweet smile
Nothing else matters

      Emily, the first thing that came to mind when I saw the photo was how I would hug my little fella even when he was covered in slush :-D – and that naturally led to inner beauty :-)Thank you for your comment. :-) You know I am in love with your writing.

    Inner beauty is what truly matters.
    And perfect hair.
    Kidding.
