Haiku: Auguries of August…

Spread the love

Not a whit, we defy augury. There is special providence in the fall of a sparrow. If it be now, ’tis not to come; if it be not to come, it will be now; if it be not now, yet it will come—the readiness is all. William Shakespeare

    Everyone loves the fall. The coming of holidays, the cooling weather. Not me. I lament the death of summer. I love the heat, the long lingering days. The late sunset. Someday, I will live where the seasons don’t change. Yes, I am that odd one. Someone has to be! 🙂

    • 14/08/2012 12:32 pm

      You are not odd. I like the heat too but can’t move to because of family ties and such… 🙂

    I am impressed! Well, I should not be coming from a master of words as yourself. Having homeschooled my daughter, I deeply appreciate anyone that can Haiku. Stella was okay at it as long as it was sarcastic! My one and only was,,, are you ready?

    Haikus are easy

    But sometimes they don’t make sense


    Thank the lord my daughter was way smarter than me 😉

    • 15/08/2012 1:35 pm

      😆 Girl where have you been? I wondered what happened to you and then here you are… humor intact! I love Stella’s haiku… zany and all. TY! Do we see you blogging again? 🙂

        Summer is non stop go. No time to write but I still find time to keep up with my favorite reads 😉

      • 17/08/2012 4:07 pm

    Such a wonderful world…augury. Personally, I am tired of August. It’s no fun in the city…in the tropics!

    That is a new word for me!

    • 18/08/2012 7:33 pm

      Really? It is a play on Blake’s Auguries of Innocence. Remember that from 5th/6th Form days? 🙂

      • 18/08/2012 7:40 pm

        I had a fragmented education!

      • 18/08/2012 7:41 pm

    I love the fun part of Summer but the heat is ridiculously hot! Yep, can’t wait for Fall and its magical colors and pleasant cool climate. Beautiful post!

    • 18/08/2012 7:35 pm

      I love them both but the summer humidity is a drag, I agree. TY! 🙂

    Thanks for the link to my post of tweeted haiku! “The Auguries of August” is a beautiful phrase.

    • 15/08/2012 1:48 am

      Thank you too for your post… and I’m glad you like my post title. It’s one of the hardest to put together as I’m always trying to keep it URL friendly. 😉

    I love those sunflowers…I do miss the fields of yellow from my old home!!

    • 15/08/2012 1:53 am

      Where was your old home? I’d love to have a sea of yellow flowers around me too. It is such an uplifting color. TY! 🙂

  11. 15/08/2012 9:13 pm

    As hot as this summer has been, I am going to miss those lazy hot days and listening to the cicadas singing…may the rest of your August be peace filled, Elizabeth! 🙂

    • 18/08/2012 7:36 pm

      May yours be equally filled with flora and fauna of gorgeous hues. 😉
