Wishing Womb

This Haiku is shared with Haiku Heights and the Prompt is Wishes. Still learning to write Haiku....



Girl in can-can frock
Like bells in pink and orange
A present awaits

roof


Bougainvillea blooms
Spilling forth; blissful release
Quivering in the womb




Amniotic sac splits
A head crowns in the birth-canal
Tiny life emerges…




A cherubic face
Wrapped in satin-ribbon
Unsullied fresh dew
