HAIKU OF EARLY AUGUST!

(Each haiku is an individual poem, though related to the others)

White dots gone from lakes,

Swans are training their young ones…

Soon…to take over!

–J.E.C.

Last-of-season sales,

Clearing out for winter stock…

Cars, clothes…furniture!

–J.E.C.

Cicada around,

Ringing waves of night time sound…

Sign of Fall’s approach!

–J.E.C.

Our Cottage refuge,

Once the family respite…

Has met a great fall.

–J.E.C.

When the landscapers

Remove summer plants and all…

Chrysanthemums awe!

–J.E.C.

Redheads turn back blonde,

Their hot summer is over…

Cooling off…is fun!

(Don’t “blondes have more fun?”)

–J.E.C.

Fat flies come indoors,

Escaping Fall’s chill…

People do so, too!

–J.E.C.
