Haiku summer

cicada chorus

swirling in the Southern heat

I'm just a regular guy who was
tempted to lose all hope but did not. It was God who made the difference.

The last line was an attempt to create a juxtaposition—turn about of a thought—which is typical of haikus. When I open the oven door hot air hits me in the face, like stepping out the door on a hot summer day. Thanks for reading and commenting, Betty.

I don’t think I have ever heard the cicada sound up here?? The oven door made sense to me The word heat makes sense as I am always opening the oven door when I shouldn’t.
I actually look for that “turn about of a thought” in a haiku because my mind thinks that way. That drove my philosophy teacher nuts (I sense he secretly liked it) in college.

I think I would look for a ground treatment that only affected those little buggers. Here I have white grubs eating the roots of everything in the garden. I dig for them as the fish love them for bait more than the regular worms.

Thank you, Beth. I made an audio recording for Gary today and sent it to him. Would you believe they don’t have deafening cicadas in Northern Minnesota?! Oh well, we don’t have black bears where I live.
Thank you for sharing!
