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 !

Lily: faithful friend, walking partner, and quite possibly the best dog ever!
