Peeling away Another Layer

My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille July 6th 2016     This week’s challenge is to create a summer haibun with a maximum of 75 words including the haiku (or tanka).

It’s July. So far we’ve had mostly rain, so I haven’t worn summer clothes. On hot days, our cottage is usually a welcome haven of coolness; it’s a pleasure to walk barefoot on the floor tiles. However, June was decidedly chilly and I have been wearing slippers and a cardigan or sweater for extra warmth.

gives a warm weather massage,

penetrates my bones:

I peel away a layer,

luxuriate in summer
