Robed in Blue

beside swimming pool
smiling in reflection–all
still after my swim

      Hiruta San,
      Welcome back to Shiteki Na Usagi! Thank you for the lovely skiing haiku you left in my comments. I am coming to visit your sites today. Looking forward to reading your collection of new year haiku.

    I liked it. As a self proclaimed water baby, I can relate to the poem. water is relaxation to me, even when it’s raging waves on the ocean.

    Oh if it were only warm enough to swim here. I can’t see my reflection in the ice though. Wonderful story of times to look forward to.

  9. Jeeves says:

    Nice one. I like the stillness expressed (esp after exercise )

    I feel like hitting the beach now with your words here, but, Oh, it’s friggin’ cold here now…16 degrees I guess, acc to my son’s thermo which he would try to take a look at it every now and then.

    Have you read my short story now?
