head shot

National Poetry Month -- Haiku 21

Just yesterday I was going on and on to everyone I know about our stellar spring.
About getting a good hit of vitamin D by day and slipping into jeans at night.
About the once-a-week rain.
About the frequent temps-in-the-70s.
About how this is the whole point of living in Austin, Texas.


Today it was like 94, my friends.

Haiku 21

relentless sunshine
already white-hot by noon;
clever coon's asleep
