Unchanging Forecast

Summer heat ramps up. My plans proceed in despair. My spirit mired ~ My garden is parched. I water plants as I can. I fear some are missed. ~ They call out to me. I can hear them in my dreams. I sleep uneasy

Poor plants. It’s pretty hot here too. Forest fires everywhere.

I definitely liked this (esp. last stanza/haiku). I can't believe it's so hot in the Pacific Northwest right now. It's often been cooler than normal in my neck of the woods (NC)

I am pleased that you checked in and thanks for the read. It's the hottest I've seen here in my six decades! Has something changed?

I faced same problem when I had plants in summer.earth just soaks up water and soil becomes dry again. Like your idea of writing haiku.

We are heading into 100 plus degree days here in Oregon (are you still in the Northwest?) and I've been worried about my plants too, am hoping I can give them enough water!

Hello Ron Ken, the dry heat is hard on plants and farmer's fields. Sometimes it takes a few days before it rains or weeks. I know when the rain comes the earth sucks up the water needed for the growth. Enjoy your day my friend.
