Sunny lad at six,

On me they just pooped.

Nice Haiku! How a boy holds a chicken and doesn't get pecked to death is beyond me!

foam said...

I know! He could walk up to them and just pick them up and walk around with them for a loooong time. They would run from me and poop on me if I did catch one.

Carol said...

I love your brother's smile in this photo! He seems so young and free.

And your haiku goes with it so well, with a twist that we can all relate to.

Ruela said...
