surprise family visit
the late afternoon gleam
on homemade chocolate

It was yummy chocolate made by my wife. Much better, and cheaper than shop bought, which is often a few months old from a factory. ;-)

Happiness was in the air. I can feel it, Alan.

Thanks for the comments, and yes I did have a nice time, but didn't want to limit the proto-haiku to be just that.

I'm still not happy with this poem and it isn't a haiku yet, but glad I had a couple of goes at it.

Sometimes these things work, sometimes not. It won't be going into any magazine though. ;-)
