Heat Haiku (Composure)
Rise up and stand tall
Against the sweltering heat
Keep cool composure
This has been a hot, hot, hot July! It’s hot enough to make tempers flare! So stay cool my friends!!!
This flower (tall and proud) popped up overnight despite the heat. I think it is some type of lily. Do you know what kind of flower it is?
This is my seventh 2017 post for year three of Cardinal Guzman’s photo challenge, The Changing Seasons. You can post a photo gallery (V1) or a single photo (V2) that showcases your view of the month. You can check out the Cardinal’s page for the general challenge rules and join right in! His photos are fantastic! Like last year, I am planning to add a haiku along with my single V2 photo each month. Even though it has been said that a picture paints a thousand words, I like pairing pictures and words; both can still mean different things to different people.
All my previous Changing Seasons posts are in one place under the Changing Seasons header at the top of the page. Take a look around my blog if you are interested! Comments are welcome!
July Haiku (Benched)
July presses on
Forcing respite from the heat
Benched relief of shade
Let’s talk about the weather. It’s hot. Heatwave hot. But I’m not complaining; I reserve that for the winter. I can handle the heat. Let me rephrase. I can handle the heat with a little help from a seat in the shade and air conditioning! Happy summer, y’all!
This is my Version 2 entry into Cardinal Guzman’s Changing Seasons Challenge. Check out his blog for other interpretations of the theme and think about joining us in the challenge! You can see my previous entries by clicking on the Changing Seasons header at the top of my page.
