Out with Nature ― Day 17 of NaPoWriMo 2015

Pleasant eating out with Nature

 
Fast food, lunch on deck
Little green friend, eats bugs, lunch
White flower grows bugs

_ _ _ _
 
 
Green by blue water
Canoes, fishing, party boats
White herons soaring
 
 
_ _ _ _
 
 
Sunshine, sit and chat
Hours later time it's to go
Pick up trash, some don't

I am linked with 
and  NaPoWriMo 2015, both for Day 17 of National Poem Writing Month
and  also the National Haiku Foundation blog (link) for National Haiku Poetry Day 

Notes:
 - Our assignment was to write Haiku about the expression of nature – we’ll celebrate and recognize haiku today because today is NATIONAL HAIKU POETRY DAY –April 17!! -- National Haiku Foundation blog (link)
 - We’ll speak in the tongue of nature…any facet of the wild-natural-world that we choose. Express your poetry today in the traditional style of haiku or step into a modern manifestation of haiku in English.
 - In my three-set poem, I probably started with Haiku and ended with Senryū.
 - Wednesday was such a nice day, with showers before dawn.  After mailing my tax stuff in Montgomery P.O. (Texas, our county seat)(second in line!!) we decided to eat at our Subway fast food restaurant across Lake Conroe on State Hwy 105.  For sure it was a day for top-down driving and sitting on the deck beside the water.  Mrs. Jim and I sat and ate and talked for more at least two hours. 
 - There was a White Heron trying to catch fish but I didn't get its picture.

geckos, herons, sunshine - love! The trash is a sad commentary on the laziness of people.

Sweet haiku, Jim. I am glad you pick up trash!!!! and maybe there are too many party boats! I once spent a few days on Lake Conroe--it was super nice. (My brother is a professor at TAMU.) k.

I enjoyed all of these and the photos are stunning...my kind of views. I'm a water sign and thought it meant nothing but I do gravitate toward water.

Thanks for visiting. We've had fresh bass but no turtle or catfish yet.

Have a blessed weekend.

Nice! I'm reading for a day like that.

I enjoyed your evolution from haiku to senryū. Not just because I was envying the wonderful day you had, but because it was written skillfully and light. Also, because from nature comes man... so your transition makes perfect sense.
