The Avocet Summer and Fall editions

Thank you Charles, Vivian, and Valerie Portolano and Editor Emeritis, Peter Leverich

for publishing these haiku:

in the Summer Issue:

Monarch butterflies

find wisteria refuge

from attentive cats

Saturday sunshine

escape to Coney Island

hot sand in sneakers

cicadas return

serenade this quiet street

crickets sing-a-long

in the Fall issue:

harvest moon

summer’s hot breath

refuses to leave

racoon climbs tree

squirrels in danger

acorns bounce off cars

early October

like the temperature

I wait for change

leaves crunch

melodies meander

into the mist
