Over at Carpe Diem anything goes today. It’s a freewheeling, freestyling kind of day.
As I’m new to the group, and haiku, I will stick to that form. In time maybe I’ll branch out into tanka, sonnets, renga, tan renga or even free verse. I find haiku difficult enough, and they have but three lines each.
Here in northern California we have been embroiled in a heat wave for the last week with temperatures hovering near 100 F. With no air-conditioning (usually not necessary) it has been a week of scanty clothing and rotating fans. We are in the thick of summer.
So without further ado, here are three of my freestyling haiku in celebration of summer.
bubbling on the vine
scent of summer
a branch cracks
with the weight of apples
a summer storm
regal globes of violet
Thanks for reading!
