HAIKU MY HEART - AND ETHEREE



HAIKU


SUMMER HEAT

city sidewalks bake
 a good rain would make them steam
the tears of the sun 



ETHEREE

SUN


The
City
Sidewalks bake
In torrid sun
Bare feet burn and hop
There is no relief here
Even in shade of buildings
Although distant thunder rumbles
Clouds do not cover the sun for long
They drift on by and sol shines down again



For more Haiku fun
please visit the heart
of it all HERE

  2. It's raining so hard here as I type these words with claps of thunder that has me quaking.

  3. I like Annie, am in California and our hundred degree weather slid into cool temps and rain yesterday and a little today... wishes come true indeed! Love your line, "the tears of the sun."

  4. I know. Most of the rainfall in Az. has been miles from here. Hope we all get a good old fashioned summer rain storm soon!

  5. As I've wished other times this summer, I wish that I could send our rain clouds out west to alleviate your drought. First time I've heard of an etheree- I'll google it soon.
    The sun's tears- unique image.
