Haiku – summer music

the western breeze stirs
a windchime arpeggio
in the key of C

Haiku 5…4

the scent of your skin
combined with freshly cut grass
intoxicating

Not quite the noise, Janet! But related!

Tanka 5.3

bright dandelions
stretching their necks far above
the soft green grasses
tip their faces to follow
the path of the summer sun




and thus begins summer

a cold, dark evening
clouds huddle around starlight,
the ending of May

whispering summer
lilacs mingle with your scent
as I pull you near

full moon burgeoning
silver spills across the ground
painting black shadows

of us standing close
our legs merging into one
amalgamation

white breath-clouds eclipsing
your face as we kiss
