The Summer Heat Descends – A Haiku

It’s the time of the week I love! The RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #103 Summer&Fun! This week the words are summer and fun.

Early summer in Colorado has been spectacular. The days are warm, and the nights are cool. We have only used our air conditioner once so far. I love these nights with the windows open.

Last night, encouraged by the heat of the afternoon, a thunderstorm rolled down from Pikes Peak. Thunder rumbled and echoed through the meadows and fields surrounding our neighborhood. Rain pelted the windows. Lightning flashed and disrupted my sleep.

After a few hours, it was gone, having played itself out; leaving a cool breeze to push the curtains out into the middle of the room. It was then, I heard the yipping sounds, from a pack of coyotes, as they roamed the nearby fields pursuing their prey. It was a wild sound which haunted my dreams. The meadow fairies called to me and whispered tales from long ago…

Thanks for stopping by! See you next week.
