  1. I will soon head out the mountains.. and fording the streams is an icy reminder indeed.. but afterwards on the opposite shore one feel enlightened.

  2. a beautiful baptism indeed!
    you do feel like a new person after dabbling in the creek.
    All the best —

    When in Maui a few years back – I did a full dunk under a mountain waterfall – once you are numb, everything else is beautiful 🙂

  4. This is really lovely. 🙂

    What a beautiful haiga … and love the feeling of wet feet!

    • I remember vacations in the mountains when we were children, when we’d put our bare feet in the creek and they would be almost immediately numb. Lovely!


      • Bastet says:

        Until recently I still liked to do that … now when my toes get numb from cold they cramp, but the memory is still great! Georgia

  6. There really is something about that icy baptism. Oh what wonderful memories your haiku stirs

    Loved this and written beautifully, making me wish I could still go to my old creek…will have to find new places to create new memories:)

    • Making those new memories can be fun as well, Cheryl-Lynn. I hope you find a new creek soon, but keep enjoying the memories of the old one. Thanks for stopping by.


  8. Beautiful haiga Janet … a really nice post.

  9. Beautiful .. the sky eye catching. : )
