Haiku for One Single Impression

One Single Impression posts: Kitehorse brings us this week's prompt, copse. Thanks, Kitehorse!


ankle deep
in summer's white heat
silent birch


drifting dust
dry-paints pine needles
empty clouds


dry creek beds
dehydrate cedar
blue sky spreads

The first one fits here today.
All three, perfect.

I read these and I see and smell and taste summer. The image of the birch....makes me think of how the birch is the first in leaf in the spring and the first to begin stepping out about now, when I realize just how hot it is.

These were luscious! The second one especially spoke to me...I loved your words "drifting dust dry-paints pine needles". Beautiful! The image is also very striking.

Lovely haiku! I especially like the second one because of this line:

"dry-paints pine needles"

Very nice Sue, I too like those silent birches. And in the winter you can see the forest where the trees were all summer long!
Also you are telling us of your Southwest experience, I've been there but didn't stay. This is another visit. Thank you.
