One Deep Breath-The Scenic Route

I always recommend taking the scenic route when time allows. You never know who you might meet along the way!
Lazy day hikers
traipse through the cow pasture
wending their way home.
Back roads and byways
expand pilgrims horizon
transforming the journey.
Short cut through the park
must stop to feed ducks!
days ends with a smile.

I love the idea of traipsing thru the cow pasture ... once in college my roomate and I had a picnic out in a big meadow and along came a herd of cows that surrounded us and just stared at us!!

Oh, I'd love a "lazy day hike" right now - except that it is cold, wet and miserable
Nice haiku

Great Haikus Becca. They left me feeling like I spent a great day hiking in the woods. Loved them.

I like all your haiku - very creative! But I don't like meandering through a cow pasture - the reality is you must watch where you walk, lest you step in a big mess! :)

I'm with PP, my encounters with cows have ended with cow patty in one state or another on my shoes or socks or legs or pants or all of the above. For me, they are best viewed from the other side of the fence. They can make nice fodder for haiku, however, as you've shown.

I've got to get my own brain cells out of "park" and into "drive." I haven't written anything for SS or ODB yet this week. I'd cop to being busy, but I know I can't be busier than you are this week!

Hi, i was looking over your blog and didn't
quite find what I was looking for. I'm looking for
different ways to earn money... I did find this though...
a place where you can make some nice extra cash secret shopping.
I made over $900 last month having fun!
make extra money
