Give



We have but little
Little but some for us all
All willingly share
Share with others what you get
Get back more than what you give

Such truth here...I have worked with the inner city poor in Houston in the past..I got far more than I ever gave

"all willingly share" If only that were true. I like your Haiku for this day.

Lolamouse this is really a wonderful Tanka. So very strong in your word choice. You did well paint the image. Thank you for sharing.

This is so good. I love how the last word in each line is the first line in the next - clever. I also love your bold sign: 2012 Year of the Haiku - watch out for firebombs from Fireblossom, hee hee!

Very nice tanka form....indeed there is lot for everyone if we all share our blessings ~

The blessing in giving returns triple-fold ... nicely done. I did not have the "heart" to go with the realism of either image ...Here is my Day 26.
