Adventure Haiku


small boy joins father
climbing small mountain
giant adventure

The picture was taken by my brother at the top of Baker Mountain near Saranac Lake, New York last July. This was N's first mountain. He's already done another.
***********************************
Bend in the River
paddle propels me
toward adventure ahead
around rivers bend

These haiku were inspired by this week's prompt, adventure, at One Deep Breath.

your first & the photo are just priceless! & the second speaks so eloquently of adventure's anticipation.

The first pulled at my heart. The second - well let me just say that I kayak too. Wonderful. Thank you.

Chelle said...

Thanks. As noted I can't take credit for the photo which was taken by my brother (the father of the happy hiker).

wonderful haiku! the first one really shows the scale of the adventure has to do with the excitement of the one undertaking it!

The first haiku reminds me of the importance of taking a significant other along (sometimes!) to share in my adventures.
