#Haiku Happenings #5: Janice’s latest #haibun for Carpe Diem!


Summer, a season of long days and short nights. I hear early dawn…heralded by birdsong before light seeps through the curtains…then I go back to sleep. I rejoice when evenings are long but how do I truly know the shortness of night? On summer solstice afternoon I see the white quarter moon relaxing in blue…borrowing time from the day perhaps? I whimsically wonder. I read haiku about summer bonfires and night parties on the beach and then I remember…sleeping bags under the stars.

in the open air

sleep-out on a summer night

dawn waits close by
