Cold

you look at my days ~ through the windows of winter ~ seeing summer sun — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Pulse

softly drifting by ~ fragrance of a summer night ~ sound of a heartbeat — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Your colours

in sky-blue and gold ~ finding all that I adore ~ on a summers day — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Appreciated

under the night sky ~ you reveal small anecdotes ~ of summers gone by — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Awakening

waking up today ~ with summer-morning bird songs ~ drifting through my mind — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Scorching

sun returns and burns ~ the incessant cicada ~ sings the heat away

Summer nights

a warm, still, dark night ~ a nightjar at the window ~ dreams are being born — Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Anticipation

I waited for it ~ through the heat of southern nights ~ and dragonfly sighs

Your summer

the start of summer ~ the air playful and childish ~ like a green balloon
