Summer Haiku

Bird calls before the alarm rings
The window opened wide

The sun peaking over the eastern mountains
The reflection on the patio table
Morning coffee

Window shades up in my parked car
Sunglasses perched on my nose

The silhouettes of the buildings next to my office
Shadows moving in opposition to the sun
Sidewalk simmers

Abundant fields, brown and gold
The combines dance in the distance
Harvest music

Kids cannonball in the neighbor’s pool
A barbecue wafts enticing invitation
Warm friends

Dark clouds rolling like monster trucks
Lightening and thunder tracks in the valley
Smell rain

The western horizon painted crimson and mauve
Smoke from forest fires burns eyes
Beauty from ashes

Crickets and frogs in competing chorus
The open window an orchestra seat
Summer lullaby
