A little patience and understanding is all you need to enjoy the beach...

city dwellers flee
beach traffic melts the highway
back roads welcome me

Here! Here! I can't take the conjestion of the cities...give me a back road anytime...glad I discovered another Ku writer. This one is great Joy!

Those terrible exhaust fumes alone would drive anyone out of the big cities. We stopped off in Aruba during our recent cruise. Traffic was bumper to bumper in the city. Could hardly breathe. Running for the beach seems the thing to do, expecially for the lungs. Good one, Joy! Great shot of the congested city too!

God Bless

well said, joy! this is the time of year to eschew beaches and seek out those dusty, forgotten haunts!
peace to you during these dog days of summer,

Joy, the brevity of the haiku form gets straight to the heart of the matter...yet you open the imagination to a vista of endless possibilities as I travel along those backroads...

Wonderful invitation to let the mind wander...

I love backroads and I love this haiku!

Reviewed by Rhonda Galizia
It's those little Asides...that bring some of the greatest spiritual freedom.........and the beach, instead of buildings! They can surely blur our view, eh?

Great haiku, Joy!

Love, Rhonda

Back roads are a respite from the madness of highways; nicely done, Joy. Thank you for sharing this haiku. Love and peace to you,

Reviewed by Kate Clifford
There is nothing like a great back road. I was in Ontairo when the Queen highway had to be closed down because the pavement became too hot! Hot summer :-) Great Haiku!

I think the back roads are truly the best, too, Joy.
Reviewed by Peter Paton

I have often found the back roads are the best and quickest way to get from point A to point B...

Educational haiku...;)
