Warm arms embrace me
family love surrounds me
raspberry kisses

I enjoy all of the Haiku Heights writers. You will, too, if you stop by and read their wonderful works. This week, the word prompt is ILLUSION. My take on this is as follows:

Once more, thank you to HAIKU HEIGHTS for the fantastic word prompt. This prompt is suggested by Aakriti of YARN OF WORDS. I must say this photo I am using rivited my attention and I could not leave it alone. These Afghan women know much about the rigors, frustrations, and limits their life demands of them,  yet, the birth of a child brings them courage and togetherness much like it does in my culture.

Maine winters can be harsh. This year has been milder than most, yet, I long for the sun’s warmth to smother kisses on my face, to feel the glow spread to my shoulders, my back and my arms. I want my body to send a Goodbye Chill to my soul and replace it with a Hello Warmth to all of me.

I am looking forward to a week in the sunny south where I will let the sun brush my cheeks and whisper sweet nothings in my ear.

time with friends I hold most dear
must I come back home?
