I still plan on writing my own childhood haiku. I'm not new to haiku, of course, but when I do write it I will link mine in the comments. Mine will be about kindergarten.

I meant to write mine soon after you did yours, but I was a bit preoccupied.

Susan, you have a wonderful knack for bringing back some childhood memories; I especially related to the "Hopscotch skipping bubble gum" and "Jumping in leaf piles". It's amazing just how much thought and emotion comes across from your Haiku poems...brilliant!
