Summer leaves us bare
but always growing somewhere
Just that I'm not there

I really liked it. Shows longing, and wanting yet that there is a hope for the future, a I saw it before and now others can see it too. Really well done.
It's the best haiku ever! just kidding.
I'm very pleased that you got something out of it.
Mistress of Word Play
You know I cannot build these blasted things. Not good at them at all. You did this one really well. Liked it. Susan :)
Thank you Mistress; my aim is to please.
If only one person likes it I'm satisfied.
This says a lot in few words. Sort of deep too. For there is a "bareness" about summer - the trees, the grass, shimmering, endless heat - and yet there is also growth in the people who greet the sun, holidays, beaches, heat loving colourful flowers...And maybe you don't join them though you want to (maybe it is winter where you are.)
I enjoyed this haiku and it's nuances.
My interpretation was Leaves:(goes away) You are correct in that I want to follow it; if I could. I hate the cold; I know thats a strong word but I'm sorry. If I could move to Florida or California I would but thats a long story.
I'm inclined to agree with our little mistress of word play. I just can't get my head around this type
of poetry. But I do admire those who can. this is very good. I did try a Palindrome though, mirror image type.
I didn't post it on Booksie though...Great work. Smiles M.
Interesting, always great to hear from you.
That last line really gets me. Where did you go. Jumped off the reality train, into a flight of fantasy??? Love it
Have posted a couple of haikus myself, but nothing that grabs me as much as this.
