Heath

Image: A heath, courtesy of Chev's

Process note: Not really knowing of how a 'heath' looks to be like, this verse has versions
of a similar kind of land area in our part of the world. It's akin somewhat to having light
undergrowth where we boys spent hours of fun when young

Nostalgic playground
Boyhood arena, stage for
countless excitements

Catapult in the
back pocket. He roamed the large
expanse of wasteland

Light undergrowth rich
in little creatures hiding
to be discovered

Heath, a treasure trove
lined with childhood abundance
of fun and laughter

Written for Chev's haiku at CARPE DIEM #103with prompt , heath

    1. Yes, first at my zoo
      But not the same at yours
      Fred is in the fray too
      Being more alert is sought
