bare feet

    Wonderfully tactile and immediate. I am three years old all over again.

    Great Haiku. I can just "feel" the cool mud oozing through my toes.

    I responded instantly to this haiku. It is visual, tactile and great fun.

    Just mud puddle on its own is so evocative!

    arboretum
    the only puddle I see
    a kid in it

    large golden mango
    top of the tree--
    broken limb
    where the boy had been
