Very powerful haiku... so expressive... made me pause and really think... thank you.

Brian said...

I like the middle one. The image of feet tracking in the outdoors. Very moving words.

Jodi said...

These are all wonderful. I like that dirt takes you back to childhood, as it does for me as well.

Tammy said...

I love the look of these but I really loved what they conveyed. Well done!

Becca said...

These have a very deep thoughtfulness about them~very nicely done. I like the way you've illustrated them too.

These all move from thought to word very well.
Neat presentation with the photo, very original.

Great presentation. The first one reminded me that as kids, we used to lick the salt block my Dad put out for the cows. Surely, dirt was cleaner than that!

Colorful Prose said...

Wow! The first is my favorite--such a strong recall of the senses. I remember as a child the astonishing sensation of a grain of sand between my teeth. Unforgettable.
