Festival Haiku - 'Festa Major de Gracia', Barcelonia, Spain

Festa Major de Gracia
the devil, angel and me
stand in a line

Festa Major de Gracia
buttons buttons everywhere
never button up our creativity

Festa Major de Gracia - told not
to touch the toilet papers that
make up the bride's dress

Festta Major de Gracia
giant pouty lips set
our tongue wagging

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
