Though poetry is not my forte, I was inspired by Jerry Dwyer’s forwarded prompt and haikus to write my own haiku about the month of August.

My August haiku:

July steeps in love.

August signifies the end.

Grief seeps in, drips out.

For me, August will always mix with grief. You can read more about that here:
