Childhood Haiku II

Empty halls echo
With dreams of long summer days
Another year passed

Bicycle tires
Humming like a bumble bee
Free destination

Sunday shoes too tight
Socks feel unnaturally warm
Soles pray for cool grass

Nightcrawler hunters
Hold flashlights steady in hand
Crouched, waiting to pounce

Rainwater gathers
Inside an old tire swing
Childhood memories

  1. This is brilliant. I love this line ‘Soles pray for cool grass’.
