Sunday Scribblings



Day 8 of the Haiku Heights April Challenge. Today the prompt is play. What about play? I will see if I can write a few haiku on this prompt.

playing outside
my grandchildren and their friends
ruining the garden

ruining the garden
play hide and seek together
my cat and dog

angainst their nature
my cat and dog
playing together as friends
against their nature

against their nature
between stepping stones
eyes of a frog

eyes of a frog
looking to my grandchildren
playing outside

See you tomorrow for another day in the Haiku Heights April Challenge

Happy Easter

This set of haiku is so pleasant. The lines give me a warm feeling for the sweetness of children and the pets. Thank you.

Charming haiku. It's fun to watch a dog and cat play together. My little 9 pound cat was friends with my daughter's dog, who was 90 pounds of huge. The cat was always thrilled when he came to visit so they could play.

A physical destruction is sacrificed for a spiritual construction! Lovely!

Great play of a haiku set, Chev! These went cascading smoothly down progressing as the young ones play. How nice!

This is super cute!!!!
I loved the way you have used the word play* & Hide-&-Seek* in Haiku with so much of zest!!!! MY favourite part was the last
'eyes of a frog
looking to my grandchildren...'
Oh!! I can imagine, how puzzling this whole aura could be..a child in me still wan to throw pebbles in water, look waves and count falling yellow leaves..!! :) Now i feel so nostalgic... Lovely Haiku!!
And you name, plume Chevrefeuille which is French for Honeysuckle, That's amazing!! This sure makes me feel more interested to know why did you choose this name.. sure there should be some long sweet tale behind the words.. I want to know it all.. Let us know, share with us in some of your haiku or details of haiku page!!

Keep as always great to be on your page!!

Thank you all for your nice words and comments. I will post a blog in which I will try to explain why I have chosen the nom de plume Chèvrefeuille. Some of my visitors have asked to.
