kisses face
in morning rain.


You is
More than truth.


Love you
I love you.

(Day 21 of asked for 'Our prompt today comes to us from Vince Gotera, who suggests that we try out hands at hay(na)ku. This is a verse form similar to the haiku, invented by Eileen Tabios, and which Vince named! For more on the history of hay(na)ku, take a look here.
