Kimo – Day 14

…just another summer day

simmering humidity, hot, thin air,
clouds hang in the breezeless sky,
low, gray, hoarding raindrops

Kimo poems are an Israeli version of haikqApparently, there was a need for more syllables in Hebrew. That said, most of the rules are still familiar:
• 3 lines.
• No rhymes.
• 10 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, and 6 in the third.

Also, the kimo is focused on a single frozen image (kind of like a snapshot). So it’s uncommon to have any movement happening in kimo poems.


Kimo Days 12 – 13

i shall never grow weary of the greens
the blues and the golden hues
of summer in full bloom

nor tire of listening to songbirds
frogs, crickets and cicadas,
the rain pitapatting

September Poem #6

summer
relentless heat
endless days dogged by humid,
sweltering, torridity, but
global warming’s a hoax

A Haiku for Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge, Prompt Words: Dazzle & Sky.


Summer Fun – A Haiku

For Ronovan…a Haiku using the prompt words Summer and Fun. At my age, these two words are not synonymous. 😓


In the summer heat
my goal is not to have fun…
it’s to find a fan!
