Friday Haiku: Good Ol’ Fashioned Picnic

Here’s the perfect spot

We’ll pick flowers, fly a kite

Spread out the blanket

Hope it doesn’t rain, Nehama V.

    First comment, and I think you’ve already won this thread, Gigi.

  5. kiragirl says:

    I’ll bring a cooler
    Filled with Ham-salad sam-wiches
    and a Rhubarb pie!

  6. Martha in Washington says:

    Why is there never a hamster in MY pic-i-nic basket? 😦

  7. Can little Jamon
    come on a picnic with me
    and our friend Jamin?

  8. skippymom says:

    Sigh…when are y’all going to get OVER Jamin, already?

  9. kibblenibble says:

    Pretty much never, skippymom. 🙂

  10. kiragirl says:

    they’re afraid of ants

  11. Well done, Gigi, very well done.

  12. I’ll bring some pb& JAM thumb print cookies ! (snerk)

  13. skippymom says:

    Yeah, I guess it really was a rhetorical question.

  14. dubyah1 says:

    Because ‘ham sammich’ was taken, we present: The BunnyRat of Omar I Can:

    A wee loaf of bread, a
    Balloon basket, and thou. Ah,
    Hamsterness enow!

  15. Tiskit, a tasket
    A hampster’s in my basket
    Eating up my lunch

  16. Mary (the first) says:

    Agree although more fondly remember the Scottish kid saying goodbye to the lion cubs. *sigh*

  17. Mary (the first) says:

    Pic-a-nic basket
    Full of cute little hamster
    Spring has sprung! (I hope!)

  18. kibblenibble says:

    Yes, M the first! I love him, too. I’m so fickle!

  19. Starfish says:

    Peeks from the basket
    “Are we going out today?”
    Not in this weather.

    (Because it’s been raining all week where I live.)

  20. *swoon*

  21. oh let us have our fun, skippymom 🙂

  22. addacat says:

    What a lovely day…
    The trees the flowers nom nom nom…
    Was that your sandwich?

  23. skippymom says:

    Oh, absolutely. I was just messing with you. In fact, you other ladies can have all the Jamin you want as long as I get Carl Kasell.

  24. OMG Gigi you made me crack up!

  25. Argh I am having issues making a haiku!

  26. Little hammie Pie
    Ready for frolicking fun
    and a picnic lunch

  27. Start with five small words
    Then add another seven
    And end with five more!

  28. LOL Well Iwas having trouble with the five small words LOL but I managed to put some together finally!

  29. did you ever see this npr valentine?

  30. skippymom says:

    I had not seen that. Wow, if I ever said that to a human it would really mean something.

  31. I pack a basket
    With packable containers
    Deep hamster-ception.

  32. 🙂 Ori (the hamster in this photo) was the sweetest, tiniest baby! Thank you for sharing my photo!!!
