Summer breeze floats above fields
Shaking gold hay piles on great hills
Ruthless flame scorches nature growth

Summer's Rain

Fields blemished by heat
Patches of lifeless, seared sod
Saved only by Summer's rain

_______________

Feelings

by Susan
(California, usa)

Anger is a dark shadow
a willow tree weeps
moonbeams light the sky

_______________

About the author: "Sometimes poetry is hard to put out. I write usually when I have something that creates deep emotions. I like haiku because it's short and I can do it easily with all my emotions. Happy, sad. Wonder of nature. It helps me to see what I might not be seeing around me."

The Modern Tiger

by Jonathan Kent
(Kent)

My little tiger
why wear that suit? When you were
young you looked so cute

_______________

About the author: "My name is Jonathan Kent, 25 ironically also from Kent. I have developed a passion for writing and experimenting with poetry. While, as you can probably tell, I am in my early stages, I still find great pleasure in wrestling with the challenges that poetry offers. I am currently working on writing a novel and will endeavour to write more poetry.

It is important for all artists to gain feedback and helpful criticism to aid their own development; I certainly welcome any comments, tips and suggestions. Thank you."

On summer thermals
A hawk circles in silence
Below, a mouse rears.
