A Summer Kitten’s Tail

My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille August 17th 2016 … a summer tale

This week it is haibun time again, for which Chèvrefeuille has asked us to: follow the classical rules for the haiku; write a maximum of 150 words, including the haiku; and write on the theme of ‘A Summer Tale’.

The combination of rain and warm sun has transformed our garden into a lush jungle, with plenty of shade and wildlife. Cats play hide and seek, birds cool their feathers and peck at fat, juicy worms. The apple trees are already laden with the weight of bright green apples and the wicked brambles that have invaded, like those around Sleeping Beauty’s castle, are becoming friendlier with their jewels of blackberries, promising pies and puddings in the autumn. It’s such a shame that the new kitten must wait a few months to enjoy our Eden.
