Lockett Meadow Campground, Coconino National Forest near Flagstaff, Arizona, autumn 2016
Having spent itself,
the wind settles in the grass
for a lengthy nap.

Richard Wright’s haiku about spring inspires me to write a new haiku about summer:
Spring begins shyly
With one hairpin of green grass
In a flower pot.
~~ ~~ ~~
Summer opens wide
with fragrant lilies blooming
in a painted pot.
