Summer Haikus 1 to 10


When hot and cold air clashes,

Thunders roll,

Lightening flashes.


The Sun

Has fun

Painting you tan. ;)


I wish I may,

I wish I might,

I wish for a pool to swim in tonight.


Like fire,

The sun bakes

While you hunger for snow-cakes.


A swimming pool

Is a tool

To stay cool.


A lightning bug is a firefly

Who winks at a butterfly

And teases at a dragonfly.


I eat a peach

Before I teach

At a beach.


The sky is blue,

The clouds are white,

The sun screams with burning sunlight.


When the day is hot,

Fish go hide under water

In the deepest spot.


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.

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...

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
