Gone, but not Forgotten ~ Haiku







lavender
browned by winter ice
evokes green



five months passed
summer heats the yard
hot wind blows



bare feet touching earth
exposed legs stockpile suntan
I remember this




Haiku Friday offers: Gone, but not forgotten.

ABC Wednesday post is on my Art Blog

and then when someone tells you that you have only seen as many summers as you have years of life,, it seems like it cannot possibly be true......

I've got to go for the first one. It, too, evokes green.
