Swing


Summer draws near and
the wooden porch swing beckons;
sit here...rest here...swing

Beautiful haiku you've got there! And love the photo to match.

Enjoyed the play of shadows and light in your photo. A perfect compliment to the haiku.

I was having trouble seeing anything but your banner and side bar the last couple of weeks. I came back a couple of times today and was finally able to read your post. Just an FYI in case anyone else mentions they had problems.
