Haiku Friday – Grandma K’s pool

Haiku Friday


Can we go swimming?

It’s so hot today, Mommy!

Grandma’s pool sounds good.


Nicer than our pool.

Fewer people, anyway.

Warmer water, too.


Yay!  All to ourselves!

Free to jump, splash, float and play.

Grandma, watch this trick!


No need for floaties.

(True, at least for the oldest.)

Showing off is fun.


Cannonball! is yelled

Jump!  Sploosh!  Oops! Lost my goggles!

Dad, can you help me?


Time to get out now!

Warm, fluffy towels await.

Can’t wait ’till next time!

  1. i love the smell of chlorine in the summer!! great haiku

  2. There’s nothing like a pool during summer.

  3. Yep, Grandma’s pool sounds way, way better than any other pool. Summertime swimming and playing around in the pool is the best! I don’t enjoy it nearly as much now as I did as a kid. Great haiku!

  4. Fun Haiku! It’s hardly warm enough here to swim yet, so I’m jealous.

  5. Awww! Looks so much nicer than our ice cold neighborhood pool!

  6. That looks like so much fun!! Love the grass skirt too!

  7. Drat! I was gonna say I loved the grass skirt. I wish we had a pool in the backyard – like our grandmother does.

  8. And I still can’t write a decent Haiku! LOL.
    The photos are adorable!
    xoxo, Alli
