Haiga 626 Michael Dylan Welch haiku - seashell
Haiku by Michael Dylan Welch (USA). Artwork by myself.
We have a very hot summer here in Japan. For the past several days, I stayed in Tokyo, where the heat from the pavement gets often unbearable. I had many places to visit, and fortunately stayed indoor most of the time, but during the to and from the heat exhausted me quite a bit.
Last night, I returned home. The heat seemed to have followed me. I was drenched with sweat, and tired. At home, grandkids welcomed me. Especially the younger one, a girl, a 3-year old, was comforting. She stayed by my side, telling me all kinds of things while I sipped a can of chilled beer.
A summer day -
sun' heat melts my body
child's voice melts my heart
