Watermelon breath.
Lake-wet hair, canoeing. Stars,
Moon, marshmallow roasts.

Pizza, pool grass.
Sunflowers, dandelions,
Sun-scent skin, smiles.

Four leaf clovers, no
school, bare feet, freedom. Garden.
Jubilant hand-stands.

SUMMER


The author's comments:
It started with the first line, come to mind and doodled whilst, funnily enough, watching a movie set in Autumn.
I had hoped that I could do italics in the poem, to show the title, but I guess capitals will have to do.
(Dragonflies and Damselflies are awesome.)

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

This poem not only sums up my summer, but also brings back good memories...refreshing poem

Not really :/ I'm working on tons of stuff, though, if you know what I mean ;)

Mostly I just post new poems and stuff on my blog.

That's OK. Still haven't answered my question though.  'cause I know you have his address! ;)(blog) 

It's ok if you forgot about the email, don't forget though. Just put in on a sticky-note. :)

Haha, thanks XD

I can't see either of the comments you speak of, I wonder if they got labeled as spam?... Nope, I guess they just didn't post or something.

Wow . . . really good! I love the imagery. But I agree with leafy on the fact that the flow could be better. Just the "no" at the end of the first line in the last set is a bit abrupt, but I know haikus are hard. Overall, great job!

4/5

Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of Gods great love, we are not consumed. His compassion never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

I liked this and I'm not normally a fan of haikus. Nice job.

I love haiku sets, and this one is really good ^_^ the only other thing I will say though is that the flow could be a bit better, but it is harder to do that on haikus. Nice job!
