a virgin a day, haiku my heart

It is day two of 'A virgin a day' and on 
Fridays Rebecca hosts 'Haiku my Heart'.  
What a wonderful offering.  
Today is my first time in participating in Haiku my Heart. 
 A Haiku is a Japanese form of poetry reminiscent of a Zen Koan. 
 In Japanese it has rather strict requirements
 for lines and syllables and juxtaposition.

Star of Love born
Returning beauty to my eyes
A miracle I behold

An assemblage created by myself : Hands of Compassion
