Nice one Ralf. Good use of the noun Punkies...

Fine image. Makes feel me summer. For haiku purists it might contain too much redundance:
forest, punkies, woodpecker - everything exists in the forest.

Anyway thanks for the summer in my mind!

Thank you, everybody.

@ Rudi: That I was allowed to create an image makes me happy! BTW: Purists would even discuss "pond" if there is a frog and some water, wouldn't they? ;-)

Best wishes
Ralf

Yes I can always smell summer here, plus you have such a fantastic, witty sense of humour lol

This does take me right into the forest - here the pileated woodpecker has changed from pecking to a constant drumming and the no-see-ums(our version of punkies) are not yet out...

Nice one. Had to look up the meaning of 'punkies' - but always good to learn a new word from reading a haiku. To me they are 'midges'.

@ Lorraine: some say, I am just kidding ;-)

@ Janice and jem: I loved the idea that punkies could be wannebe-punks as well. And thanks for dropping by, jem!

Best wishes
Ralf
