Haiku

Mist dampening
the upturned face
cooling the sun’s effects

Personification

Happiness lies in the readers’ eyes
They pull me off the shelf and open my cover.

Happiness lies in the readers’ mind
They follow the lines with interest.

Happiness lies in the readers’ heart
They understand my words

Happiness lies in the readers’ souls.
They embrace my essence with feeling.

To Be Blessed

To be blessed is feeling
the warm sun all over my body.
To be prosperous is like
all the stars in the sky,
to be blessed abundantly
beyond what you can ever imagine.

To be free is like a bird
flying high in the sky
without limits.

The ant said, to be wise
is to store up food for the winter
all summer long.

To be alive is like God’s breath
in our lungs.

The rabbit said to win this race
you have to jump and run high
and don’t look back.
