Summer Awhaikuing

Stronger in numbers;

the leaves a deaf audience

clapping spring's last bow.

Ha ha Steve yes, I did think to myself 'you're being a smart arse'

thanks Cynthia just corrected that- grammar is like an annoying little brother to me; tripping me up when I try and show off.

But in case you didn't know Cynthia- applause in sign language is hands up in the air waving (kind of like 'jazz hands')

This is a version of a set of seasonal haikus I am doing for a public art commission.

Interesting idea, Cathy. I love haiku - clever title. You find the 'leaves deaf' and I find them full of sound. So I had to sit and think a bit as to what you might mean.

Check 'spring's' .
