Haiku Life

by Larry Strattner

A funny thing this life

Happening to us in turn



I touch you gently

You look, your eyes a question

We dance together


Cavorting we find

In fun, a different feeling

Love blossoms for us


We stand together

At the altar speaking vows

We are beyond them


We love our children

A blessing of our own love

Our lives are fullness


Our children's children

Play and laugh before us now

Amazing beings


We sit in twilight

Our eyes still dance together

In our happiness


Laughter in our lives

A Celestial bonus card

We drew at random
