In My Innocence


In my innocence,
I thought the fog was water,
lily pads thick clouds.

  18. This is one of a kind… creative in thought, and just beautiful.

  19. Your haiku makes me think, I like it.
    From what I make of your haiku, innocence can lead to a lot of confusion, misapprehension; yeap, I agree. Innocence is not an altogether perfect state to be in. Haha.

  20. Wow, I’ve never seen a water lily reach that high before! Very cool – nice use of the prompt too 😀
