Strong Haiku. At first glace, doesn't push the 'girly buttons' and cliche stuff. It's one that segments itself into the brain a little while after reading. Summer harsh truth snared in few words. Huge Congratulations!

Well done, Andrea, our birds flutter in the dirt to cool themselves since they don't want to fly too high off the ground and lose sight of land--afterall, we are an island, Congrats and Aloha! William

There were plenty of clouds in the sky around my way tonight. We had some rain as a result. Nevertheless, this is a great descriptive haiku.

So picturesque in seventeen syllables. Can see your soaring bird rising above the heat. Good luck, my friend!
