Haiku Marriage

Updated on December 17, 2017

On Saturday 9th April, my daughter Charis got married to Chris. The most wonderful day; the most perfect couple; so much tangible love. Thank you, and blessings to two very special people. A haiku for you.

      Hi Tony, thank you so much. These two are the best examples I know of grasping the moment and living in the now. They inspire me. Love to you too. Russ

      Hi Larry, as usual, your comments are supportive and warming. You always seem to 'get it'. One of the benefits of writing hubs is looking forward to your insight. Thank you and go well my friend. Russ

      Good morning, Russ...You have once again lit a brief but brilliant haiku candle...Your lovely daughter has your engaging smile...and yes, Carpe Diem !!! I wish them all the best the world has to offer, and may they always find joy and happiness with each other...

      I'm thinking of your comment on one of my Hubs when you were on vacation in South Africa with your daughters...You mentioned getting up early one morning and walked to a hilltop with one of your daughters where you both talked, laughed, and watched the sun rise...You said something to the effect that " see, this happens somewhere, every day, all over the world "...Like her wedding day, I'm sure she will treasure that moment with you alone forever in her heart...

      Live in the moment, my friend, and that moment will live forever in your heart...voted up and beautiful...Larry
