September Heights, day 26 paperboat

Inspired by the theme at

Today paper boat is the prompt. A lovely one and it brings sweet memories. As I have told earlier in one of my posts for Haiku Heights I learned about haiku through a colleague of mine when I was learning for being a teacher. She was an origami artist and she brought me the Japanese haiku. Since that day I am a haiku addict and I write haiku right from my heart. So paper boat has to be a good one to write a haiku on.

Let's go do some haiku writing (smiles).

fountain of joy
children playing with paper boats
one sunny day

one sunny day
I folded paper boats with my grandsons
ah! what a joy

ah! what a joy
to see the paper boats sailing
to the horizon

to the horizon
paper boats sailing away
children's laughter

children's laughter
when their paper boats sail
fountain of joy

Well ... counting down ... four days to go and than ... September Heights is over. What a sad idea.

Well ... maybe my new weblog CARPE DIEM, seize the day a new daily haiku meme
The first prompt for Carpe Diem is waterfall and is already on. Come enjoy the fun, share your haiku with Carpe Diem.

Your haiku is a fountain of joy from the very beginning to the very end.
I remember my grandma making paper boats and more origami for me...

Love your haiku,
remembering newspaper boats that would float...
those were the days.

Folding paper boats with my grandchildren is really fun and of course we had try them in water. They 'sailed' away for a moment and than ... sank to the bottom of the fountain. It was really fun
Thank you all for the nice words you sprinkle on me.
