Easter joy
she shares a cheesey smile -
all her eggs dyed

back against the wall
refusing to rise,
the homeless man
will this be
his abode for the night

Such a beautiful and happy little girl - looking at her smile lifts my tired old heart! Interesting juxtaposition of the happy haiku and the plight of the homeless man. The contrast works very well to jog awareness. Well done.

Old Egg said...

How this reminded me of 70 or more years ago when the only Easter eggs were chickens eggs dyed pink with cochineal. Britain was at war and chocolate a rarity. Happy Easter to you.
