The Haiku Challenge 2012 – Day 15 – Beauty lies

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

Haiku smile

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 😀 – 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.
