I hate to break it to you, but this is not the haiku tag section. I was just showcasing a summer haiku. Oooh, I can see you blushing!!

Oh, I was not supposed to tag.  Well, it was such a good subject, I think we should make it a tag.  There are so many things that we could write about summer.  You started a good one, let's keep it going.  And, yes, I am blushing.  Thanks for noticing.  :)  haha.

Well, I can barely keep up wih witt and rach on the haiku tag.  It is addictive though.  Cracking up at Rach blushing.  Were you trying to figure out a way to delete?  hahaha

Take care!  Nice summer haiku, witt!

Nice one!
