Snips and Snails


portable
cheerfulness for stormy days
his rainbows



one by one
a smile at a time
delights all



youngest boy
harvests happiness
gives it back



Snips and Snails (boyhood)- prompt by One Deep Breath

These are just so precious. I can't decide which I admire most! The line harvests happiness is brilliant. BTW thanks for pointing me towards the NW bloggers site! Christine

"Portable cheefulness" is a great line~children certainly know where to find that, don't they?

childhood is awesome, bubbles are, too. I liked them all, but the last one is telling.
