Summer is almost here

The first day of summer is next week, so I thought it appropriate to share some summer haiku. These are all from my poetry collection No Boundaries.

Fun summer pastimeScreen Shot 2019-06-18 at 1.32.26 PM

Crack of bat at plate and cheers

Baseball up and out.

***

Baked feet blistering

Bubbling shimmer on black top

Where are my flip flops?

***

Warm waves crash the shore

Bringing in surfers and crabs

Shells crunch underfoot.

***

Seasonal bathers

Vacationing families

Where’s the hot dog stand?

***

Delicious taffy

Corner of the worn boardwalk

Smooth chewy goodness.

***

String breaks flashy show

Teeny weeny bikini

Jump and grab a beach towel quick.

Crispy lawn drying

Thirsty for a summer rain

Aching blades of grass wither.

***

Drone of mowers

Neighborhoods and avenues

Lazy swinging-hammock days.

***

Please write your own summer haiku – remember –

5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables.

Try it!

  1. Weather warms sun waves
    ocean surf sprays to cool us
    walking on the beach

  2. Sunshine, water, fun
    long summer days of ice cream
    barbeques and friends

    My first ever haiku! Happy summer, Karen.

  3. Grandkids make me smile
    Sun, rain, or stormy
    ripe berries yum yum
