Summer

 Tanka Tuesday No. 280 

first

red, ripe

tomato

from my garden

bliss

 


heat

sets in

afternoons

are spent indoors

cool

dog

loathes heat

spends his day

under table

limp

  1. Lisa, that photo of your dog is just precious and hilarious! I love it! And thank you for the lanterne prompt - I hadn't written one in a while!

    Much love,
    David
