Poem in Response

After reading “Maravilha” (Portuguese, meaning “The Wonderful”) by a beautiful and talented writer hailing from Lisbon, Portugal, Carla Milho – wherein she conveys sentiments of love, sincerity & happiness – I was inspired to write this haiku…

Crafted with magic
Drawing two hearts together
An artist of love

    OMG…wait, first let me say that your haiku is slammin’. But no you didn’t throw in Steppenwolf with “Magic Carpet Ride!” It complements your poem Phil. Thanks for that blast from the past my friend! Whoooohoooooo!!! ✨🔮🌟

      Right on, dear Kym ~ thank you so much! I figured that one can’t go wrong with a retro song from Steppenwolf, plus it cites Aladdin’s lamp, which is cool. I’m glad you like both & wish for you a pleasant evening, my friend 💖
