Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, June 19th 2019, summer solstice

on

summer solstice

Summer’s Goddess
Blesses with her golden orb
Heals us with her light
*
Golden zenith rains
On fields of blossoming green —
Cornucopia
*
Darkness gets cheated
While long summer days play
Owlsongs are cut short
*
Solstice strawberries
Are the deepest red — and sweet!
Shortcake’s dance partner
*
Spring’s asparagus gone
Solstice berries sun dance
Hungry birds wait

    Very enjoyable. As the Mulberry tree fruit ripens… and the ivy grows…
    Oh wait isn’t that a soap opera “As the World Turns”

    Nicely done. I can visualize each stanza. And wouldn’t change a thing.
