Celebrate Poetry-4/13: SUMMER

The theme for Day 13′s celebrating National Poetry Month is “SUMMER.” Click HERE for details of this haiku celebration of throughout the month of April.

Around 2:00 this morning, I received a weather warning text that Fayetteville is under a freeze warning. (I haven’t been able to figure out yet how to change my iPhone weather alerts from Fayetteville to Dallas!) But can you believe it? A freeze warning in the middle of April?

Anyway, I thought it was the perfect time for a summer haiku:

Summer will come
when warm breezes chase away
doldrums of winter

Jan on beach

    The sun gets so high
    cool shade so deeply cherished
    I better loaf 

  2. Don’t you wish we were walking along the edge of the beach right now instead of skirting another bit of winter? Possible slushy snow here tonight, but I think it will just be rain. 🙂

    Fan turns lazily
    Glass of tea sweats in my hand
    Hammock swings slowly

      Yes, winter has stayed too long. We were going to go to the Bluebonnet Festival today, but it’s cold, windy and rainy, so I guess not.

      But your haiku REALLY captured the feel of summer. Love it!

    burning sun
    darting through the concrete
    my sole blistering

  4. Azim Khan says:

    scorching sun
    school bags on head
    speedy homecoming

  5. Jim Barton says:

    in soft summer air
    jeweled dragons dart and fly–
    beauty on the wing
