Haiku Heights Prompt: Meaning

superstitious boy
hops across cracks in sidewalks
each leap meaning love

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    Ah.. atleast those cracks are small 🙂 Here, we jump over one and land straight into the other 😛

    I hope the love in his heart and leap stays with him safely 🙂 Thanks for all the beautiful haiku over the last year, Susan. Hope to see you more over the next year at HH too.
