Shared Times

Best friend and I traditionally have a barbecue each time we meet. We prefer a wood fire and have some ‘secret’ picnic spots in suburban Sydney, easier where I live in a scenic rural setting.

Vegetarian fare on Turkish bread with tea then a nice long walk. It’s the company and conversation that is the real gift.

Close friendship nurtured

on our many scenic picnics

know each other well

  3. That was one of the most touching Haibun’s on picnics I read: full of flavor of the event and more so of the flavor of deep friendship — well done. BTW — when I comment on your blog you click my name and keep goinng to my philosophy blog, not my poetry blog. Click here is my Picnic Haibun, if you are interested. I do like your visits to Triangulations too, though. Smile.
