SUNDAY SMILES


BLOG HOPPING TODAY WITH

Writers’ Pantry #53: The Bicentenary of Anne Brontë’s Birth


 ANNE BRONTË  - A Reminiscence

 (With my highlights for a found haiku)

 Yes, thou art gone and never more

Thy sunny smile shall gladden me;

But I may pass the old church door

And pace the floor that covers thee;

 

May stand upon the cold, damp stone,

And think that frozen lies below

The lightest heart that I have known,

The kindest I shall ever know.

 

Yet, though I cannot see thee more

'Tis still a comfort to have seen,

And though thy transient life is o'er

'Tis sweet to think that thou hast been;

 

To think a soul so near divine,

Within a form so angel fair

United to a heart like thine

Has gladdened once our humble sphere.

(found haiku)
Yes, thou art gone
 lightest heart that I have known,
 soul so near divine
--gillena cox 


AND

GOSSIP - A Tanka
really, she did?
are you kidding me,
black stilettos!
to the backyard party,
and no face mask on.

My growing up nickname was Smiley. I still smile a lot. Have a blessed Sunday, we are off for church.

Looks like mask-wearing is going to be a part of our lives for quite a while, so they may as well be brightly colored!

If we have to wear masks, we might as well make them bloom!

Very nice, to offer Anne Brontë a tribute of her own words.

Happy Sunday, Gillena.

Excellent writings Gillena. I especially liked the image of the color covered mouths on the white sears — beautiful. Engages one to think. I am pleased to join in at P&SU in this new year. Hope it’s a good one for all
