SUMMER HAIKU

wind, rain and darkness
heaviness pervades the earth
a sunbeam breaks through
soft blooms of pale pink
tumble out from sage green leaves 
fabric's illusion
sun dappled curtains
hint of a beautiful day  
there's housework to do
fresh cut firewood
musty smell of earth
whiff of coffee
smoke of wood fires
through afternoon shadows
stitching needlepoint
waking to sunshine
summer like weather today  
humid clouds roll in
giant maple leaf
bows to the earth
sunshine glowing through
drowsing to the sound
of wind dancing in trees
a truck roars by
