Haiku my Heart - Letting the Unexpected Sunshine in

it's unexpected
some unexpected sunshine
bursting through the clouds

a couple of weeks ago I posted my Sun creation

Then, I sent photos to "Sunday Morning"

this is the reply I received:

so, wade through the thunderclouds life sometimes throws at you
 endure the rain beating you into the sand
but remember to look up...
there may be some "unexpected sunshine"

if.....if.....my sun gets chosen
it will be only for a brief moment or two
there will be no name, no credit
but if I see it

it will put a momentary
ray of unexpected sunshine in my heart

that's worth all the paint, beads, clay,
glue and hours it took to create this smiling sunshine face.

happy weekend!

 to put more haiku 
 unexpected love and
 sunshine in YOUR heart
