I love it Rachael! Thanks to your last verse I’ve learnt many things:
-the word “plover”, very nice birds!
-the expression “to play chicken”, that is so funny! I really was puzzled by the expression “playing chicken” 🙂
-I love the “unsaid” many possible meanings of this verse
Thank you, have a nice week-end 🙂
Aww. Thanks. I so naively assume that everyone knows what I’m talking about. Playing chicken is a kind of ‘daring’ thing kids do, and grown ups who haven’t really grown up do it too…
I’m so pleased it gave you pleasure and even a little puzzlement 🙂
Have a pleasant weekend too, F. We shall have a wet one. We’re waiting for the storm to break after this heatwave 🙂
i admit i was puzzled too 🙂 i enjoy your haikus btw every day 🙂 hope the rain comes to you x
Maybe my role is to puzzle… 🙂 Pleased you’re liking the haiku – they just keep on coming – but not much one can say about them 🙂
Oh, I love this image, Rachael! I always enjoyed seeing the plovers dancing around in the surf, scurrying away from the ice cold water on spring mornings as they searched for food. Beautiful words, as always, dear friend.
Thank you, Miranda! It’s an image I’ve had in my head since childhood, when we used to go to the sea for a few weeks every year – always to the same place. There were wide plains of sand. My brothers and I would draw and write stuff, then climb the cliffs to admire our efforts. Have an enjoyable weekend, dear friend.
