"Whatever inspires you about this month—the namesake of Augustus, the solemn memorials to inhumanity and survival, madcap vacationing in sultry weather, or traditional Autumn—write a haibun alluding to August."
Blooms are ripe and full as they will get. World in color.
August prepares me for a change in sleeping temperature. Air off, windows open! The light of evening begins to wane sooner, stores
are showing Fall clothing, and shelves are stocked with notebooks.
As a child, I saw this month as long, with plenty of time
before school began. Now the month zips by like a jet
plane. A perk of August is getting a variety of fresh
vegetables and tomatoes from my generous neighbors.
Today I made salsa.
