Monthly Haiku Corner – August

This is the time of year we call Summerween. Ghosts are visiting empty pools. Witches are gathering their brewing tools, and insects…well, they’re doing whatever icky thing insects do. Yes, it’s sticky outside and if heat doesn’t kill us, or Covid, the nighttime creeps on the prowl surely will. Our theme this month is Summerween.
