FRIENDSHIP & COMPANIONS HAIKU (Response to One Deep Breath's 11/12/06 Prompt)

[Graphic courtesy of Jim Warren Studios]

autumn evening
we take the longest route
toward the beach

This haiku is both based on a recent dream and a very old memory. It was one of those times with a dear friend when the time together clearly meant far more than any goal of the trip.

There's something very beautiful about this haiku - taking the longest route on an autumn evening.

Thanks crafty green poet, I guess something of the beauty of that long gone relationship comes through, even after all these years. :-)

reading this haiku, your relationship comes through

there are times when the shortest distance between two points is not the ideal route :-)

thank you roswila

Oh, yes, there is something to be said for lazing along, isn't there?
Thanks for visiting, star.

I'm glad you think so, Patry Francis. No matter how many 'ku I write I am always surprised when such a tiny form carries such a "big" moment. :-)

Ah, Sandy, I saw yours earlier and don't remember if I left a comment. I love the snow trees photo, and the humor to the renga. Glad you enjoyed mine. :-)

I love the image of the longest route. It's beautiful and makes me thinks of long lost friends.

Yes, that's why I was so delighted to re-discover Jim's painting to go with it. The memories of long lost friends are precious like the friends were, aren't they?
