Rain rain stay away

Round of golf to play today

Birdies for us all!


Bounce and spring of board.

Excellent height.Perfect form.

Huge cannonball splash!


Clink-clank of iron.

Close only counts in this game.

Horse is missing shoes!


Serves and volleys fly

over net. Clever backhand.

Love is in the air!

      I don't see you often over on my site so thought I'd better touch base here on yours. Hope you are well. Very clever haiku!

      wonderful haikus... they capture the summer sport theme very well... you are adept at capturing the visual snapshot with your words, Dana, well done.

      Fitting haiku for the season, Dana!! You've got the knack of writing non-traditional haiku; you do justice to the everyday things!! Love this, am sharing.

      Hello Bill! ... you are right, I owe you a visit, or three. I am a bust busy bee in the summer. Hope to do some hopping tomorrow. I will hop over your way for sure :)

      Thanks Josh! I thought about you when I was working on the tennis one (cuz u like tabel tennis, not the love part. i am removing my foot from my mouth now...). I wanted to include a ping pong photo for you, but I couldn't find a good one. It's the thought that counts right? :)

      Linda (Sunshine) - I thought about the Olympics too. How can you not with the amazing games going on. Though I don't think cannonballs would go over too well in teh diving. Horeshoes would be a great Olympic sport. The way my boyfriends crew play, you'd think is was one. He even has a pit in his yard!!!

      Hi Twin! - Rain?! Well that doesn't mix well with these sorts of games. But it does make puddles to hop in! There's always a bright side, right? :)
