Remains

This haibun is for Frank J. Tassone’s weekly prompt. This week’s topic is remaining heat (zansho). I wrote this a few days ago and am just remembering to post it now.


The temperatures climb to triple digits one weekend in September. Is there relief? When the sun tires of emitting such heat, the fires take over.

somber September:
one last burst of heat before
summer turns to ash

  1. This is a year of many disasters; disease, hurricanes, fire…
    I think many should learn from the left over ashes… but most will not.
    I read one of the fires was started because of a couple doing a baby ‘gender’ reveal.
    Why not just send an email of faceplant post?
