Tako (kite)

(Image Source: http://www.abcteach.com/)


a thousand birds
sailing with waves blue
little children clap

a star falls
on his humble roof
a gift of smiles


This Haiku is shared with Carpe Diem - Tako (kite).

  3. Beautiful. I like the way you compared kites to both birds and stars; and yes, it would be a gift indeed if a 'star' landed on one's roof! Smiles.
