Haiku


                                     tree lined Main Street
                                     on this summer afternoon
                                     only the air moves
                                    
                                      hot and humid
                                      another day
                                      dripping summer

                                      sticky heat
                                      at the family dinner
                                      a pot boils over

I love the way you've work-shopped the photo. Adelaide - it looks just like a drawing; and to accompany it a very nice sequence of haiku.

Adelaide said...

Thank you, Frank.

I wish I could draw like this, but alas...I can only work-shop the photos I take.
