As you fall in Love

Smiling butterflies drift by

On cloud number nine

Forelsket is a Norwegian word for the euphoria experienced as you begin to fall in love.

This Haiku is one of a series about emotions. It explores a word that describes a feeling but the word doesn’t directly translate into English.
