Haiku: Stormy summer

For TJ’s Household Haiku prompt.


Strange, stormy summer

of wild winds and searing heat—

dewdrops, fleeting tears.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. Summer, winter, autumn or spring,

    Wherever one is perhaps they feel the same thing.

    Funny is an understatement


      1. Fear intrinsically keeps us safe.

        Enjoy the bathe before the pull.

        Water that seeps away is only closure to a storm.

        Peace will follow.


      2. Death is a new beginning.

        In my end a power releases defining anew the themes of death
        And by the ceasing of my breath an infinity of living born afresh

      3. I read some earlier. I had no idea what he was saying 😝
        Did you ever get into Christopher Marlowe as a writer? De Faustus?

      4. No. They’re the kind of writers you either study at school and get a taste for, or hate them forever. If you didn’t study them at school, they’re difficult. I passed.

      5. I did 4 unit English at a selective school so they rammed us with all that jaaaaaazzzz. I think I was wasted most of the time so I probably understood it. Now I just lack the brain cells. I did love Marlowe though, Keats and Wordsworth. Traditionals I know. I’m only learning to branch out now.

      6. School poetry for me was Masefield, de la Mare, Yeats, Tennyson, and later the war poets and Wordsworth (who I didn’t like at all). I like the lyrical romantic poets, but don’t got a bundle on anything contemporary.

      7. I’m cliche – a fan of the sound of French. So dreamy. I also love Eastern European accents – shhhhhexy staccato!

      8. Haha I grew up in a very Italian migrant suburb so I am most definitely not swooned by it. Triggggggggger.
        Always sounds so agro.
        You have the italians I’ll have the French
        French women are gorg

      9. There’s only a fine line between passion and aggro so I see what you mean. I’ll let you have the French women with pleasure. I’ll stick to the men 🙂
