Joy of giving


giving the last coin
from torn and dirty pockets,
a turtle dove sings  


a turtle dove sings
above old house, melody
sweet as red cheeries 

sweet as red cheeries
are kind words from poor widow,
giving the last coin


Written for Few Miles Haiku Challenge 2012 for the month of February:   Day 23-

  8. sweet as red cherries, and a turtle dove sings - wonderful repeating lines, and 'giving the last coin' speaks volumes.

  12. So very sweet and romantic! The sounds are so soft and gentle!

    And thank you for taking the time to suggest a tweak in the 2nd line of my haiku! But the tweak you suggest is actually 8 syllables (sharing -2 some-1 experiences -5)! The line I have is the necessary 7 (sharing -2 experiences -5)!

  16. the greatest gift is from those that have nothing to give, and they are so often the greatest givers.
