July 27 - Chinatown Night Market

The dancers' long sleeves
Float like pennants as they sway
Swirls of white and red

July 20- Melissa

Old friend, you're still here
Waiting for something better
From this long, hard life

July 19 - Buskers Festival

Glass balls float like ghosts
Over his knuckles and wrists
Catching evening's sun

July 16 - Chinatown

Chimes whisper their songs
Stirred by the breezes of boys
On an urban prowl

July 15 - Bamberton

Two boys at the beach
Slapping wet sand with shovels
Strangers once, now friends

July 14 - Englishman Revisited

Damp towels, the funk
Of mould on every surface
We flee south, hopeful

July 13 - Coombs

No goats on the roof
No sun, no fun, just downpour
Four boys and me, stuck

July 12 - At the Swimming Hole

Ice cubes wouldn't melt
In this river where they plunge
Shrieking at the cold

July 11 - Englishman River

Terror feels like this
Sliding down a mountainside
Led astray by boys

July 8 - Mackenzie Beach

The wind finds us here
Hiding in the tall beach grass
Sand scours our faces

July 5 - Radar Hill

Trail's mud pulls our boots
The plane is frozen in rock
High above our heads

July 4 - Morning

Night's cold lingers on
Coffee vanquishes the chill
Sambuca mornings

July 3 - Tofino

Summer draws us west
To Tofino's wild ocean
We are 15 strong

(Note: Wild-waves graphic was selected by my grandson Zachary, age 11, who is an early riser and has been helping me with my haiku project while on our family holiday in Tofino)
