Magpie Tales 173...Afloat

The Promenade, 1918, by Marc Chagall 
 
 
Hands clasped tight in love
Joy filled her like helium
Promise kissed the air

Magpie Tales 173...I haven't done a prompt for several weeks--not sure why.  This painting made me think of that wonderful euphoria of being in love, and since I haven't done a haiku for ages either...

  2. I love haiku ... picking the right word that conveys so much more than 'the rules' allow is such a fun challenge! You've done well here!
