My weekend in haiku


Slow afternoon hike
Four women, five kids, two dogs
Cupcakes at the end


Lazy morning golf
Peekaboo with the sunshine
A fox startled out


Two baby deer chase
Each other in our yard, then
Food, laughter with friends

  1. Love the pictures! The first haiku is my favorite. :) Heaven on earth, and that’s just the cupcakes.

    I think you’re quite the poet ;)
    Sounds like an awesome weekend!

    I loved the first haiku. It’s hard to go wrong when one of your words is “cupcake.”

  4. Haiku is the only type of poetry that I write with any regularity because it’s the only poetry of mine that I can read months/years later and not cringe.

    Sounds like you had a fun weekend!

  5. Poetry, pictures and cupcakes oh my. Where did you go hiking? Looks gorgeous especially the pond with the lily pads.

  6. Wow, I wish I’d had your weekend! It sounds lovely!

  7. That does sound like a lovely weekend :)

    Cincinnati Nature Center. I had never been before but it’s lovely, and I love that you can bring dogs (as long as they are leashed)!

    Sounds Relaxing…ah…

    My weekend:

    Hanging pictures…Ouch!
    Toads in the bedroom…Uh oh!
    Writing? Not Enough
