JULY thoughts

Summer haikus:

humidity comes
as a wet, soggy blanket-
--Karla Dorman.

The sun melts the day
and the moon lights the cool night.
The oean beckons.
--Samantha Costa.

Sizzle in the sun.
Blue poolglistens wet and cool...
Take breath and dive!
--Adele Caulfield Schiller.

"Clouds drifting slowly
through the sunny blue sea
late summer breeze
warms my heart and bone
in a peaceful moment.

"a rough sea
breaks on the beach,
a thousand
knots unravelling
in my weary head"
