at the lawn concert
lighting one spot at at time-
Fireflies Anthology, Bottle Rockets Press, Summer 2007

cricket in the house-
if only we shared
the same bedtime

a cool summer rain
impatiens perk up
before I do

You've really caught the flavor of summer, Adelaide.

Bill said...

Nice group, Adelaide. I like the freshness of you fireflies-ku.

Adelaide said...

Thanks, Bill.

My very first haiku was about fireflies. :) I love this set! I've enjoyed visiting your blog very much.

Adelaide said...

Thanks, Kristin.

I love how you captured best what fireflies do... lighting one tiny spot at a time!

In "crickets" I enjoy how you calmly observe his singing even though you are in need of some sleep.

And...the comparison of your fatigue with the perky flowers is fabulous!


Adelaide said...

Thanks for your praise, Robin. Already the weather is changing and I'll be thinking autumn haiku.


T.Migratorius said...

Yes, how quickly this summer has flown. I'll look forward to your autumn poetry.
