Cousins play mermaid
sun-baked rocks their castle
picnics in the sand
It’s National Haiku Day! This haiku is in response to NaPoWriMo Day 17.
The Prompt: “write a poem re-telling a family anecdote that has stuck with you over time. It could be the story of the time your Uncle Louis caught a home run ball, the time your Cousin May accidentally brought home a coyote and gave it a bath, thinking it was a stray dog, or something darker (or even sillier).”
I don’t have any stories that stick out in my mind at the moment so I chose to write about fond summer memories instead.
