Warm Spring Night

I could do without the humidity, but I love Pennsylvania weather, especially with the change of seasons.

Red sunsetWarm Spring Night

Clouds over mountains.
Warm breeze caressing the skin.
Pennsylvania spring.

Seasonable heat
Wrapping blankets of moisture.
Shadows bring solace.

Beckoning twilight –
Western horizon afire,
Mountains catching sun.

This haiku trio was written entirely for fun. It struck me as I was pumping gas, just as the sun was setting. The clouds were rolling past Nittany Mountain as the sun painted in the western horizon. Just as I stepped out of the car, I was greeted by a lovely spring breeze. The first two stanzas wrote themselves as I stood there filling up the tank. If not for the smell of car fumes and gasoline, it was a quite beautiful place to be.
