Floating gracefully
In the cool spring breeze without
Knowing where I land

Here is the first haiku from our featured haiku writer this week! I am pleased to introduce Jessyca Mathews, a published author and overworked teacher. Check out her blog at Sultry Lyricist

I enjoyed the airiness of this haiku and the clever structuring of the sentences.
This haiku is part of my LEAF series.

can’t make its mind up

mid-summer night’s dream
searching the hot cotton sheets
for a brief cool spot

slanting sunlight and
cool air means Autumn is here;
the year is turning.
