Summer Night Haiku

giving our family
a long summer night


Are you enjoying the summer nights with your family?

New Summer Old Goals

a walk through the neighborhood

new summer old goals



I wrote this for #haikuchallenge on Twitter. I wrote it in Spring, but I am posting it on the first day of Summer. Do you have any old or new goals for the summer?

The picture above was taken in 2014. It is hard to find pictures of me by myself so here is one of me and my husband.

I don’t know why I haven’t shared all of my 2014 haiku with you guys, but I haven’t. I tried to go back through my old haiku in April, which is National Poetry Month and share all of the haiku that I had been too scared to share. Some of it I hadn’t shared because I was waiting for a good post, or a cute story to go with it and it never came so I shared without words. Leave me a comment and tell me if you prefer posts with just the poems and no words.

Today’s prompt is “nature” but something unique to your region. I tried and tried to think of something but couldn’t think of anything that was worthy of a haiku. So I wrote about my family picking fresh produce in our own gardens and how many of us are redheads.

You can follow me on your favorite sites. I am on Bloglovin’ and Instagram and Twitter and Facebook. Give me a share or a like so I know which sites my readers like.

Dead Leaf Haiku

wind blows dead leaf
which is crazy because
it’s summer

It is summer in my part of the world. What do you do during summer? What do you see during summer in your part of the world?

Summer Sun Haiku

How was your summer?

little boys plain to see

There are few things greater than watching my son play baseball with the neighborhood kids.

What outside things did you do with your kids this summer?
