Weekly Haiku Challenge: Lethargic Heat


Fret about the heat

Long warm days tiring me out

Wish the weather’d chill

Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge this week was fret & chill.

Maybe it’s a little selfish to complain about heat when my friends in the Northern Hemisphere are still in winter (though some are telling me it’s getting nice and mild, others still have pictures to prove the snow’s still around). I guess I’ve just had a slack day. Almost went for an afternoon snooze, and now I feel like the heat of the day is brimming under my skin. I should take my own advice and drink more water.

Gonna have an ice cold drink now 🙂

PS ‘Tiring’ is two syllables. Trust me, I googled it 😉

PPS I know the photo was taken back in October, but it was a good one, and I was too lazy to go outside and take a new picture of glaring sunlight. Plus the plant probably isn’t in bloom like that anymore. I think it’s the apartment block next door’s front yard?

My new adult urban fantasy book The Black Swan Inheritance is FREE until Feb 6 when you download it from Smashwords, Kobo, Barnes and Noble or the iBooks store! (is that iTunes? no, I had to go through the iBooks app) This giveaway is in celebration of the lovely new cover designed by Emma Wakeling. You can probably see it to your right——>
