summer’s end —
the thunder strikes
an unfamiliar chord
where summer goes
when it feels blue —
last summer heat —
the flap of the envelope
too easy to loosen
It isn’t really the end of summer yet. Actually, it’s warm and sunny here, and I’m sitting out on my deck basking as I write this. But last week it was so cold I went shopping for wool long underwear. And the last time I went running I was crunching leaves underfoot.
It’s nice to be back to posting haiku. The ironic thing about going to a haiku conference is that it doesn’t leave you much time to write haiku. Neither does spending hours and hours writing about the haiku conference.
I hope, by the way, that that was a nice change of pace for you and not just an interminable annoyance. At any rate, it’s back to a steady diet of mediocre haiku for the foreseeable future as I try to catch up on my homework …

I like “where summer goes” . . . We can all relate.
Keep writing, and inspiring us to keep writing.
Love the ‘unfamiliar chord’ that’s just great!
