a shade darker

late summer haiku

glistening sea
once a sandcastle
stood this ground

sultry air
thrasping
cicadas

barnacles
the cutting edge
of her voice

evening shadows
drift onto the dune
a day’s regrets

meteor shower
lost in
the pause

August moon
your summer face
a shade darker

  1. It sounds like you were down the shore when you wrote this. It evokes a peaceful feeling and a bit of mourning for the summer that is almost over.
