HAIKU | FARM LIFE

HAIKU

salad days… picnics

trekking… laid out in the sun

don’t forget… factor 50

~~

summertime… farm life

swallows nesting in the barns

fresh roast beef for lunch

~~

free range chicken eggs

lamb… mint sauce… new potatoes

summer on the farm

~~

rape fields in full bloom

mellow yellow… flax fields blue

cows blowing trumpets

~~

if it does not move

goats will eat it… silly goats

taste nice… spit roasted

~~

night time on the farm

frantic tussles… rats fighting

farm cat mewing… hedgehogs grunt

~~

farm life… early morn

cows in the dairy… milking

cock-o-doodle-do

~~

breakfast… full English

harvesting the ripe fruits

combiner action

~~

hard days work… all done

respite… a flagon… cider

sat beneath the moon

  1. I absolutely love this, Mick! It brings back memories of summers at my grandmother’s house in a small town in Alabama, Pop. 500. Only we had fried chicken, butter beans and iced tea with mint. I prefer your menu.

    1. Thanks Ina,
      Happy days for me too. Lived on one, worked on a neighbouring one, sweet 16 at the time, doing a years practice before going to Lackham College of Agriculture, didn’t happen, parents were townies, and moved, again recorded on this blog, (somewhere). Love iced tea, never tried it with mint, a must try, me thinks!
