Thanks so much. This little haiku has gotten more attention than I ever imagined. I do kind of like it myself.

Ah Beautiful Milton. It's lightly raining here in Airdrie, Alberta today. A nice soaking light rain that we need here on the prairie. Getting ready for Fall. God Bless, JB

Thanks so much for your read and the comment, JB. I always appreciate hearing from you. I'm thinking Airdrie would be like parts of South Dakota I visited recently. I do hope the rain doesn't turn cold yet.

I liked the thought of summer sighing. Is she sighing sadly or sighing because she is glad to go.... We are a few weeks into Spring and everything has starting to bloom. the weather is warming up after a colder than usual winter...

Obviously our seasons are reverse. Good to have your thoughtful comment on my poem. I'd say she's sighing sadly, since I'm not a great lover of cold weather! Best wishes for the weekend, Shirley.

nicely done Milt. Worked outside most of my life and swear that I could hear and feel that subtle sound.

Hope you had a good day, John. Also, I hope you didn't get sunburned. It got up into the high seventies here in Kentucky. Fall is in the air, but Indian Summer is nigh.
