Visual Haiku: Summer Nights


Moonflower scented,
Hot Southern night hammock ride,
Swing me to the moon


Mosquitoes droning
Citronella candles lit
Fireflies welcome here



Barbecue he-man
Swaggers by with tong and spear
Pride goeth before

Hammock rides, look at you. I haven't even set mine up yet, not that I get to use it - ever. I went the barbecue route (among others) for my submittal at the Buzzkill.

So swing right, don't let the mosquitos bite.

My Haiku contests live on! And now they're visual. Cool.

I like the second one best.

Buzz,
My idea of luxury is to lay in a hammock under a night sky without the drone of mosquitoes ! Problem is, if you light the citronela you can't smell the moonflowers!

A tribute to our much missed Haiku Master/Mute Monday host of blogs past :-) Makes for a fun combination. It's a bit slow at the moment. Pam is our Visual Haiku hostess but she is away. Boxer is our judge. If you haven't been following along, look back at previous visual haiku subjects. Some of them have been quite good. Buzz and MRM kick on this game!

Thanks. If I have been an apt student of the Master then the second one is the better of the three because of the transition. Right?

Chickory,
Actually I think all my moonflower seeds drown this year. The fence by the hammock is clad in confederate jasmine and that too is a sweet, sweet smell of Summer.

Foamy,
join us for the haiku game, it is soooo fun! Come on up here and ride in my hammock, watch the fireflies, sing to the moon and inhale the jasmine. Truly Summer.

Moi,
howling with laughter! I bet I know a dozen women who would swear they know intimately that barbecue he-man.

Boxer said...

you know when I first read your last haiku (and thank you for leaving it for me earlier today) I thought were referring to Troll.

We don't have fireflies in my world and I wish we did. They are wonderful, but I think your BBQ one is my favorite.

Happy Haiku Thursday!

Whooo Hoooo!
Thanks Boxer, I am honored. Given the week you've had, I hope this made you LOL, as it did me.

Glad you like the new look. Still working on it a bit.

A troll sighting here! I'm excited! Meanwhile, great haikus. Sorry I haven't really been around to supervise but promise to be better now that life is getting back to normal. Read about your storm also, yikes. Life in a southern town.

Pam,
Welcome home!
You've been missed.
Definitely exciting Troll sighting!

Obesity during childhood is another heartbreaking and precarious existing condition in our society today, wherein the most alarming thing about it is a sudden gradual increase in number among American people. Despite the fact that a lot of people do not understand this obesity among childhood, they just consider this as cute or chubby children. This certain condition is another thing which cannot lead only to severe trauma emotionally but also psychological concerns which are too dangerous in nature. The idea is not as simple as having cute child because the more the issue was taken for granted, the deeper concern should ideally be allotted on this matter. As the matter of fact, this issue was linked with numerous clinical conditions involving noticeable increase in number of childhood diabetes cases, childhood arthritis, and childhood heart problems. What is more alarming are not these physiological disorders but the recent study revealed a great number of pediatric suicide attempts being recorded between the years 2000 to 2006 were actually cases of obesity. person to person.
