as we row through the water
fish jump to meet us

Part of Little Onion's Summer Tour 2006. I really do feel that I learn so much from the children in the time spent with them thinking, writing and laughing.

I love the rhythm in this one!

It seems like the summer of 2006 will be a famous one for haiku!
