CARPE DIEM #756: Summer Relief

Inspirations by Jane Reichhold:
a cool wind   
summer passes 
before it begins

late summer  
even hotter by the breath  
of dragonflies

the sadness of knowing  
days growing shorter

by Kristjaan:
between summer flowers  
dreaming of next summer

tears shed   
on my naked body  
summer is passing

My haiku:
needing relief from
torrid temperatures… too soon 
 summer’s charm passes

sharing with Kristjaan's

Hoosier Quote:
“In order to live off a garden, 
you practically have to live in it.”
~Frank McKinney Hubbard~

Your haiku paints in a nice way the passing of summer Nonnie. Thank you for your nice comment on my post.

How well I can identify with your haiku ... summer is a lovely season ... August temps in June though are not so appreciated! Bastet

Passing summer charm
Heated beast, smouldering breath
I melt, I melt, I . . .

complaints of heat
long since forgotten
in the blizzard

Summer gets real old real fast sometimes, doesn't it?

We've been having a very lovely spring-summer. No true scorchers yet. Lovely haiku! :)
