I love haiku's - I think we should all attempt them more often. The picture is pretty, looks like spring is on it's way!

I know it is "freakin'" winter but I still want to take my canoe down this river. Your photo is stirring up something in me. It's a really lovely photo. And the verse is perfect.

Nice, Lisa. When I was a boy I loved to watch our creek when it was over full and see what all went floating by. Oftentimes I would add something of my own.

BTW, we are visiting our grandchildren (and children). The little one with the toys is 19 months old. The other is a teen now.

Our 19 month old toddler grandchild is on my other blog, at Jim's Little Blog.

I never knew you did haiku!

very beautiful.
I know the waters will become deadly forces in the spring thaw. Be careful.♥

We hope not. Ours is reaching flood stage, too. Ah, such is spring. We've had a good, wet winter, haven't we? Should be a beautiful Spring!
