Old Poem Saturday – Haiku by Fletcher

MidSummerDusk copy

Today’s poem is a haiku by John Gould Fletcher (1886-1950) entitled “Mid-Summer Dusk.” This is meant as an antidote to the early darkness of winter – a reminder that the seasons will cycle around again and just a few short months ago the days were long and hot. Illustration (ink on paper) and composition by me. I hope you are all having a good weekend, staying warm and dry, and eating Thanksgiving leftovers. Safe travels to all.
