Cool Relief

Riverbed

We were removing shoes
without a moment to lose
Enjoying soft moist sand
~

A hot summer day
Sweat like bugs crawl down the cheeks
Cool water we seek
~

The water beckons
Like a forbidden secret
Waiting to be shared
~
Soon it will be warm again and we will be able to enjoy the cool refreshing water on bare feet. We (my sister and I) grew up with a creek in our backyard and we enjoyed many hot days wading through it spreading toes in soft moss and sand. 

This post linked to Carpe diem. Enjoy the haikus spun from the challenge provided by Kristjaan Panneman.

Oh yes I remember that feeling all too well last summer.
I know it will come again! I shall enjoy the water, even in a bucket!

Fabulous poem, and I can't wait to feel the sun on my skin!

Lovely series of haiku Judy. I like the way you have used your childhood memories in it and have brought those together with our Special of today. The last (3rd) is my favorite it has a lot of deeper layers and spirituality enclosed in it.
