Haiku: Folly


Right up my alley, this prompt from One Single Impression. Much of my current life is folly!

Folly
Counting syllables
while poolside with the children.
Poetry it's not.

Great haiku and photo. Don't waste so much time counting syllables that you forget to play in the water.

First off, welcome back from the European vacation. WOWZA, how cool.

Secondly, beautiful shots and words - the visual is a beautiful reality.

Lastly, I'm in love with Bruce's Thunder Road song. Every time I hear it, I think of YOU!
