My Barefoot Days - June poetry

Welcome to the group poetry efforts of five bloggers, including myself. Each month we chose a theme and then set about putting our thoughts, feelings and rhyme on pages for you to read. At the bottom of the post you'll find the other links.
This month we chose "Barefoot Days" as our theme. For me, that is everyday. I am not a fan of shoes. Okay, I love heels but can no longer wear them. I spend my days barefooted. My pup knows if mama has on shoes, she is leaving.
It is my desire that you see my childhood summers in this Haiku. Thanks for stopping by.

5  Me running barefoot
7 jumping in puddles of rain
5 feeling slimy mud

5 it squishing between my toes
7 puddle jumping and splashing
5 long warm summer days

5 picking peas and corn
7 swimming, naps, firefly catching
5 blowing gum bubbles

5 pigtails a flying
7 chasing pretty butterflies
5 pink cheeks freckled nose

5 playing tag with friends
7 two dirty feet and scraped knees
5 a little girls dream

5 rainbows and toad frogs
7 flip flops and short sundresses
5 summer barefoot days

5 cousin sleepovers
7 reading stories by flashlight
5 making each day count

  1. Love your haiku,brought me back to my own childhood. Perfect way to celebrate barefoot days!

    1. LOL I see I forgot to remove my numbers. Oh good grief...I was counting to make sure it was correct.

  2. Now I'm happily lost in those days! Thank you!

    1. I do miss those carefree summer days when I was a kid.
