...once a week poetry treat for the young and the young at heart...
The juxtaposition of muck and homework here made me laugh. It must be nearing the end of summer! Thanks for the post.
Hi Bridget, I've been on the beach & we spot the fish by the ripples. I love that you call them their sighs, will remember that.
These are delightful -- I feel refreshed after reading them. Wonderful observations . . .
Your post title is all kinds of perfect. (and so are your haiku...I, too, love the home-work!)
Thank you, Sarah, for the comment. Fish do swim in schools after all... =)
Thanks, Catherine! =)
Thanks, Linda! Oh, the beach...we have a trip planned for mid October to visit the beach - long overdue. *sigh* =)
Thank you, Jama! Sometimes pond*ering just happens naturally... =)
Thank you, Mary Lee! Good thing I wasn't looking a creek or I'd have to name my post creek*ing haiku. LOL =)
I love the vision of ripples echoing the fishes' sighs. Lovely! :)
I love the unusual perspective of the underside of the lilies -- I would never have thought of them as umbrellas for the fish!
Thank you, Myra! Makes you wonder what fish have to sigh about. =)
Thanks, Keri! My daughter pointed out that since fish are wet anyway, do they really need an umbrella? hee hee =)
Wonderful haiku– such fresh, eye-opening perspective, Bridget.
Thanks, Michelle! High praise from a haiku creator herself. =)
