Summer Haiku

rose trellis
shadows on the wall
woven by the wind

first light
a coolness in the call
of mourning doves

summer dampness   surrounded
       on a country road   night smells

Shiki kukai, 11/2010
Presence , autumn 2010
Taj Mahal Review, winter 2008
(with some modification)-

An excellent trio. I especially recognize the coolness you hear in the mourning dove's call.

Thank you, Bill. Soon I'll be putting up autumn haiku. Where has the summer gone?

I echo Bill's sentiment a very nice trio of haiku. In particular, I like the first poem - love the third line.I can't believe it's September already.
