my first friday haiku

sunlight through the trees
memories of my childhood
laughter in the wind


dinner will be late
tree climbing takes precedence
savor each moment



(thanks to Melissa for reminding me that I said I would try a haiku)

Oh, I love it! And the pictures are wonderful. (Will I ever get to see the May Queen again??!? *sigh*)

That was nicely done!
See how you've been missing out?
Play again next week!

You life always inspires arcane adjectives in my mind: sylvan, arcadian...

Those pictures just scream "summertime"! It makes me want to climb a tree, have a glass of lemonade, then jump from a tire swing into a babbling brook.

I have a fantasy every summer that my children will grow up in a world just like the Country Time lemonade commercials....this post and pictures remind me of just that.

Great images in verse and photo! I SO loved tree climbing as a kid. Can't wait until my kids start doing it. I think...I guess trees are a little HIGH.
