Haiku Wednesday

Introduced to Sensational Haiku Wednesday by Tara Tyler, I decided to give it a try this week . . . and it was challenging, but challenging is good, right?
Especially when I've been feeling like my blog and my writing both need something new, a kick of creativity.
So, enough, meandering and stalling  . . . here's my haiku for Sensational Haiku Wednesday. The theme this week is excite(ment).

jumping on tip toes
amber hair flying up
hands outstretched

my daughters dance -
faces shining, taps making
music for the soul

If you would like to check out Sensational Haiku Wednesday go to You Know That Blog and find out more! Next week's Wednesday theme is battle . . . hmm.
