Invitations

the lake waters rise
from deep briny ocean bed
inviting swimmers




see the blue mountains
closely touching the skies, clouds
beckoning, come close

~O~O

  1. Swimming is such a complete experience too, a natural follow on from a good haiku.

    Thanks for visiting my site and suggesting I join this challenge in the first place. It's been just manageable, and good fun.

  15. Last week when I was in Sedona - it was so much fun to watch the clouds over and around the mountains ... both the mountains and the clouds shared some interesting subjects. Congrats on completing the month of Haiku!! It has been enjoyable reading ~~ Happy Friday, Happy Weekend, Happy October!
