Haiku #70 Lift Your Voices in Song (1-7)


We sing your praises
For this pink and purple day
Of sky water sand (1)

We thank you Father
For this pink and lilac day
With grand purple sands (2)

Pink and lilac haze
A perfect day for lovers
Mystic and profound (3)

A day of days
In sky of pink lilaz haze
Horizon mimics (4)

Pink and lilac day
Where we stand on purple sand
Edged in pink waters (5)

Oh mystic pink day
Your sky in brilliant array
How grand purple sand (6)

Pink and lilac haze
Profound truth another day
Pink water purple sand (7)

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
