Haiku Friday: Summer Travels, Real and Imagined

The days are getting longer-- here in Minnesota, dusk stretches until nine at night, this soft lift through pines.

If you are like me, you are thinking about summer travels-- trips that may not be possible this year, at least not in the way we might hope.  Everything is on hold, it seems.

But let's haiku about summer travel, if only in our imaginations. Here, I will go first:

Warm water, gentle waves
A lifeguard in a Speedo
One bird flies past, low.

Now it is your turn! Just use the 5/7/5 syllable plan, and have some fun!

First night Holiday
Inn in Hurley Wisconson
pool salad bar smiles
Bought a paddle board
Plan to spend time on the lake
being by myself
Long rides in a car
Showing kids America
Learning new myself
Going to Texas.
Fearful but also eager
to see family.

We live in a time
where trav’ling to see those we
love most, scares us most.

A canoe in water.
Hup. Dip. Dip. Dip. Dip. Dip. Hup.
Repeat and Repeat.
Drop the "A." I don't know what I was thinking.
Walking at midnight
Watching sea turtles lay eggs
Magic on the beach
Palm Springs, O, Palm Springs.
One hundred and eleven high.
Glad my trip is off.
Now leaving Waco,
Planes wheels on the runway go,
Touchdown in Madrid.
