Summer nights

Thursday night:

Late summer drive

wind roars in my ears

cool breath of night

~

Tonight’s moon is lost 

though mists unveil the stars

an eerie feeling

~

Friday night:

As last embers glow 

quiet suspends in coolness

moonlight cups the sky

~


Not visible in this photo is the crescent shape of the almost quarter moon. One of many benefits of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai prompts is their encouragement to absorb the outdoors. The prompt ‘cool’ nudged me to closer enjoyment of summer night air—touched in two of these haiku.

  1. Nice Janice, I felt each of these. I’d say, like myself you’ve been haiku’d:) Ever since I happened upon Carpe Diem Haiku Kai I have been paying much closer attention to what goes on in nature. A job well done.
