strawberry picking (haibun)

Near their campground was a huge strawberry field and every July the children would pile into the family car in the morning before the hot midsummer sun.  Straw hats and lots of sunscreen,  the children ran off to do their own thing with a feeling of self-importance and holding their own plastic buckets.
