Summer Haiku

Delicious taffy 

Corner of the worn boardwalk

Smooth chewy goodness. 

Fun summer pastime 

Crack of bat at plate and cheers 

Baseball up and out. 

Baked feet blistering

Bubbling shimmer on black top

Where are my flip flops?

For more haiku, free verse, limericks, samples of my funny bone, and both joyous and sad memories of family, see my collection of poetry, No Boundaries.

  1. These are excellent! I haven´t tried haiku yet.

    Phillies are at 50 wins – 50 losses.
    Likely to remain around .500 this year.
    No playoffs.
    Love salt water taffy. So bad for me.

      I’ve only seen the Phils a couple/few times this year. The best salt water taffy near you – Dolle’s in Rehoboth!

      Oh, and that pic is at Blue Rocks in Wilmington (from the time I performed the National Anthem in sign there).

  3. Love those funny bones, Karen.

    Summer memories
    Grilled burgers, garden produce
    Thunderstorms, fresh rain

    Good Humor ice cream truck
    The bell makes children joyful
    Cold, summer taste treat
