Haiku Heights, home

Inspired by the theme at


After a month of writing haiku every day we are back to the normal rhythm. Today the prompt for Haiku Heights is home a wonderful prompt I think to write a haiku about. So let's go ... and look if I am in a good flow to write a haiku (or a few).

in the backyard
overgrown by Ivy
my old bike

my old bike
leaning to the hot wall of my home
a hot summer day


a hot summer day
in the backyard of my home
sparrows bathing

sparrows bathing
in the fountain of the mansion
what refreshing

what refreshing
seeking shadow under the willow
in the backyard
