My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

A Mid-Summer Haiku and Back to Blogging!


I’m happy to be back to blogging, as of today. I’ve been working on a number of offline projects, which I posted about over at Happy Break.

Suffice to say, July has been a very productive month. 🙂

The hot weather continues here in BC. This haiku and scene always makes me feel cooler.

This is one of the 120 haiku poems featured in my new book: Haiku Reflections: The Four Seasons. One of several projects I completed during this past month.

I hope you are having a wonderful summer and staying cool, however you can. 😉

How’s your weather?

  1. This does make a person feel cooler, looking at this photo and reading your haiku. You did have a very productive July, that’s great.

  2. Certainly an outstanding picture and haiku. It feels like a perfect summer day… Great job with your projects. A banner year for you for sure. Way to go, Geraldine!

  3. Hi Rumpy, Thank you! It’s great to be back. Quite the story you shared re: June Buggie, Mr. Cheddar is still meowing about it. 😉

    Hi Joe, It’s kind of amazing how a photo can make you feel cooler, but it really can. I’m looking forward to a productive August too!

    Hi Sue, You are so kind Sue, thank you.

    Happy Week. Looks like another hot one on the way here… G

  4. Welcome back! Still hot, I take it? So is the haiku!

  5. A beautiful photo, and haiku, Geraldine!
    I’m hoping our cooler temps may carry through abit of August. It’s been around 23 to 24 C this week, and such a nice change.
    It sounds like a very productive July – congrats!

  6. I love your words…so eloquent and the photo is to dream of….

  7. The best way to begin, is, to begin.
    This is great advice, Geraldine, so simple and true, and I think I should put it on a peace of paper and have it in front of me at all times. 🙂
    Congrats for all your great projects and for the way your novel’s coming along!

    I love the haiku and the picture – that water is wonderful!


  8. Hi SandyL, I’m TRYING to ignore the heat but it’s not easy. As I’ve said a million times before, I am not a hot weather fan, I find it so draining. And my kind of a bad day is getting nothing accomplished. 😦 But in spite of the high temps, July was very productive for me and I’m already working on a good August, in this respect. 🙂

    Hi Brenda, Oh that sounds wonderful, send those cool breezes west ok! 😉 I’m glad you enjoyed this photo and haiku.

    Hi Lorraine, Thank you my friend.

    Hi Vesper, So nice to see you again. Yes, a good quote to keep in mind. I need to post it somewhere too but it’s one I usually remember, since I actually wrote it. LOL

    How is your novel coming along. I’ll stop by soon to see if you have any news on that project.

    Hugs and Happy Thursday, G

  9. Congrats on your productive July and on your book- how cool is that??? Cooler than the weather- that’s for sure. Chicago has been hot and steamy- I am looking forward to cooler weather at some point! Hope August is as good to you as July was!
