wrapped around porch posts
the purple morning glories
shinnying skyward

    I’ve always loved to see the morning glories climbing up porch posts … reminds me of a beautiful childhood summer 🙂

    Shinnying is such a great word in this context – nicely done!!

    • Thank you. “Shinny” is also a word that too many people confuse with “shimmy.” So it’s not uncommon for me to read someone’s story containing the line “He shimmied up the tree,” when, of course, he should have shinnied up the tree. Drives me crazy!

    Well, I am one who has both shinnied and shimmied. Your haiku does shinnying proud!
