Mid July (4 Haiku)

by Leonard M Hawkes

Rust-dust-green maple;
Flare of half-bloomed fireweed;
Morning autumn light.

Heat, dust, withered green;
Sunflowers, dry brome, fireweed;
Autumn's long shadow.

Fall in morning light;
Sunflowers dance in withered brome;
I'll dust the squash plants.

Brownish tinge at dawn;
Dry blazing heat by high noon;
Red sunset--wildfire.
