    Looking for true love
    One must look in the mirror
    and say I love you

    sometimes love begins
    when God showers down His love
    and you accept it...

    This is the first haiku, I've read by you. I really love this because from time to time (confess my weirdness) I do this very thing. I remember the very first time I did it, I felt rather silly goofy. However, the more I did it, the more I wanted to do it.

    "I love you Joyce" The more I love myself in Christ, the more I will love others. Besides, I've been commanded to love others AS I love myself. This was a good read. I would love to read more haikus from you in the future if dat ain askin' 2 much.

    Much respect Bro...Joyce
