Summer Haikus 1 to 10



#1:

When hot and cold air clashes,

Thunders roll,

Lightening flashes.

#2:

The Sun

Has fun

Painting you tan. ;)

#3:

I wish I may,

I wish I might,

I wish for a pool to swim in tonight.

#4:

Like fire,

The sun bakes

While you hunger for snow-cakes.

#5:

A swimming pool

Is a tool

To stay cool.

#6:

A lightning bug is a firefly

Who winks at a butterfly

And teases at a dragonfly.

#7:

I eat a peach

Before I teach

At a beach.

#8:

The sky is blue,

The clouds are white,

The sun screams with burning sunlight.

#9:

When the day is hot,

Fish go hide under water

In the deepest spot.

#10:

Summer is tall

In comparison

with Spring and Fall.

This is for Poetry Pantry Week 4:

Hi Jingle, I have a suggestion. I think you should write more summer haikus and put together a book. I think it would be lovely.

Back in 1999 I wrote some summer haikus and then decided to put together a book. If you want to see it, this is the link:

Love these, especially "the sun has fun painting your tan"......good one! Haikus are difficult, you write them with apparent ease.

Just Me said...

Jingle, You asked me to leave a link for my award page. I do not have a link. I only have the ability to post things to my blog. I am confused by what you mean so if you could explain I would appreciate it.

theimaginativetraveler said...

Today, the sun was screaming 'with burning sunlight'. Your lovely haikus made it easier to take. I so enjoyed them..thanks for the respite!

Connie Arnold said...

Great! I sure enjoyed these!

Eric Alder said...

Money can get you in the door, but money can't buy you THIS nomination from me.

(Well... maybe... IF it was a LOT of money)

Okie said...

What a great set of haikus. I've always loved the idea of the haiku but have never been able to create one that I actually liked. Nicely done here. :)

Bill Cook said...

Love the Haiku. Especially #'s 2 & 6. - Bill
