Twin Ponds Park: 3 Haikus

On Saturday, we joined friends for a multi-family play date at Twin Ponds Park in Shoreline.  I’d never heard of it before, but it’s very nice.  As we prepared to leave, I took the kids to explore the trail around the pond, and we found this wonderful little corner of the pond.  I wish I’d run back and gotten the camera, because it’s the kind of place that makes photography easy.  Poetry will have to suffice.

Golden hued sunlight

Daylight’s waning minutes fade

Shine on still waters

 

Ducklings and mother

Swim through sun-dappled waters

Beneath verdant leaves.

 

Slanted trunk, strong limbs

Shelter at the water’s edge

Place of summer dreams.
