Haiku Heights #288 ~ September Heights Day 15 ~ Wilted


                                                   





                                                                 
                                                              Languished and dwindled
                                                           
                                                             in the scorching sunny afternoon

                                                                 child  comes home.

Thirsty baby elephant

  2. My son too comes home tired from school. A quick bath once again and hot lunch refreshes him. Our climate is the culprit. Lovely Haiku Ushaji.
