Lovely setting of a scene that screams of picnics, sun and straw boaters with deckchair striped jackets. Hope it eas strawberries and cream with a little bubbly to make it all the more memorable.
I'll just have to make do with strawberry and cream campinos and a can of tizer, huddled under a brolly as the heavens open, but we are getting a pretty spectacular lightning show at the minute. I am so getting windscreen wipers put on my kitchen windows. Got so fed up trying to look through the river running down the panes that ive dragged a chair over and opened the door to watch it.
My neighbour phoned as soon as it started and I answered with a "MUAH HA HA", took me ages to peel her off the ceiling. 😀
Don't worry, she'll get me back.
Looks to me like youre getting the hang of these high coos 😀

dear Chris... I love to see the reflection across
the River of colorful bouquets of History. Our Rappahannock River is
wide enough to paint a Rembrandt of scenes we see in reflections.
gently, Pat

This is a haiku that captures a moment in nature. A very descriptive work, it puts us right in the scene, despite its brevity. Summer is a very good season for capturing these small jewels.

It's like when mind is opened at blissful fontaine of wonder and your thoughts became part of landscape and they start to evolving your imagination to get more connect with nature and your self.

You welcome .
An amazing senryu (maybe, haiku) that highlights a river without ever mentioning water.
Outstanding imagery, poetess!
