beaches and sunshine
but my dream is a cabin
woods and rocky stream

Linked to REBECCA for more Haiku,
where the grass is truly greener
on her side of the fence!


  1. Yes, the woods and rocky stream sound very inviting Judie. Love those photos, but I too prefer the quiet of the "woods and rocky stream." Awesome Haiku. Have a great day amiga. Oh about the flower on the squash or zukes as I call them....They are delish stuffed with cheese, chili, onions. We have ours in the garden but they do sell them in stores. Take care.

  2. Beautiful photos and your haiku says it all Judie...

  3. Gorgeous place Judie. Indian Rocks Beach at sunset Wow. All of the photos are so pretty.

  4. I like both kinds of places. Either can bring peace to me.

  5. Looks like you live in 'paradise' ~ lovely haiku ~ wanting 'what is not' ~ don't we all do that sometimes ~

    Happy Weekend to you,
    artmusedog and carol

  6. dear judie,
    so much beauty. i love the ocean and am grateful for my many years living on the coast in california. it took a while for me to adjust to life inland-and now the beauty of the open sky-the towering pines, the scent of sage, cool mountain nights and sun kissed days are all close to my heart. thank you for being here sharing your light and love so generously.
