One Day My Prince Will Come

Girl braves mosquitoes

Desperately kissing toads

How very charming

The Olympians

Extraordinary;

National heroes shines bright

Powered by a dream

Gravity

Intoxicated

Smashed under the apple tree

beer meets gravity

      Your haiku are like old wine in a new bottle. I think frog prince is the best piece.

      Cool, Jo! Your angle is surprising as always. Liked the last one and the pictures. Yeah, some frogs only remain frogs as a friend complained once.

      Frank, more-likely to be my fault, should have wrote a small intro. Anyway, mosquitoes usually represents summer, girl is at a mosquitoes infested pond kissing toads and wishing for her prince charminag, us girls would face anything for the right one. And who else would be giving a mouse a piggy-back.

      Thank you for the visit and vote of confidence.
