Early morning walk
Cobblestones echoing our footsteps
Against ancient walls

  1. I want to go too. Very well done. I could almost hear each footstep.

    Have a fabulous day. My best to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

  2. Coffee waits for you, somewhere :)

  3. I can imagine walking these streets in search of a cafe'. Probably made in a French press served in fine china! Short & concise, well done on the prompt!

  4. I love taking early morning walks through streets like this when I'm in Europe.

  5. I can hear them...and a dog barking in the distance. ♥

  6. Perfect words for this! I'm ready to visit.

  7. It would be a great place to go for coffee, or just to look around.

  8. Footstops like trackmarks etched through ancient cobbled time ....

  9. Looks like it's too early with no one in sight!
    Yes, the cobblestones will make sounds! Happy walking!

  10. I got a very nice feel for the place with your haiku

  11. Conjures up nice visions!

  12. Puts me in mind of a little B&B in a narrow Edinburgh street I once spent the night in!


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
