moisture’s dew point

Kim at dVerse Poets hosts “rain” quadrille (44 words) prompt this week…

 

mist hangs thin veil

covers landscape, 

shrouds horizon.

sky heavy with humidity

air’s mood presses in,

mildly claustrophobic;

when clouds cannot rain.

 

hair hangs thick veil

covers face,

shrouds emotion.

heart heavy with futility

mind’s mood presses in,

wildly claustrophobic;

when tears cannot reign.

 

 

grieve a breeze

“Time Travel: Ancient Japanese Poetry” with Chèvre at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai

 

Even a breeze may fail me

When I desire it.

Little I should grieve,

If only, sure of its coming,

I could await even a breeze.

waka by Princess Kagami (7th century)

 

extreme summer

wrung out from humidity

even breeze feels hot

best dog days

At d’Verse Poets today, Toni invites us to write about the “dog days” of summer…
 

not gonna miss ‘em

our dog days are over

weather cools to 80’s

summer humidity drops

we can breathe again
 

heat made us both pant

my sweet silly Lily girl

husky-lab fur face friend
 

her final breaths labor

humidity of tears drop

105 fevered body cools

my dog’s days are over

oh, how i miss her !
