Haiku About A Cool Breeze On A Hot Summer Day

Sizzling summer heat
City’s concrete jungle Hell
Breeze God’s cooling touch

    I’m jealous. It’s been a rather cold June so far in Greece. Must be the financial winds howling.

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      Yes, a cold chill throughout Greece as Lenin’s ghost leaves his Red Square mausoleum in Moscow and walks the streets of Athens and the highways and bi-ways of Greece.

      • Nicholas C. Rossis said,

        A prominent cartoonist called Arkas went offline today, hounded by leftist trolls who disagreed with his latest work. In it, Arkas had stated, “Definition of a leader: someone who saves the country from a disaster caused by his governing of the country.”

        “Syriza’s internet team knows where you live,” Lenin’s descendants declared on his Facebook page in response.

        The black hand can’t be far behind.

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      No, Nicholas, the Black Hand definitely can’t be far behind.

    It is not that hot here in Germany. The air is still too fresh and too cold, as if winter just don’t want to let go … Brrrr …

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      That’s interesting that the weather is so cool in Germany.

      And so cool in Greece.

      Because it’s super hot on North America’s west coast.

      Record high temperatures in British Columbia.

      And record high temperatures in California.

      Meanwhile in the U.S. Mid-West, the tornado season seems to be getting worse every year.

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      I’ll send you the heat and you send us some rain since there are a lot of forest fires in British Columbia due to the hot dry conditions.

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      Okay. 🙂

    All Hail the cooling Breeze God! What incense does he like? Do you know? I want to burn a lot of it. 🙂 (You are the Haiku Guru)

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      Thanks for the title of Haiku Guru, Daniel. 🙂

      I’m not sure what incense the God who sends cool breezes likes.

      I just said a silent prayer.

      Speaking of incense, it’s interesting that you should mention that subject.

      I’m currently in the process of writing another super long screenplay (a la my Last Episode of Frasier style).

      This screenplay is of an interview between a Montana cowboy TV talk show host and one of my vampire novel’s characters the genetically created half-man half-goat satyr serial killer and contract assassin Pan Goatee (whom you may not have encountered yet as I believe it’s been a while since I last wrote about him and you have only started reading my work fairly recently).

      Anyways in the portion of that interview I wrote yesterday, Pan Goatee brings up the subject of incense when the cowboy interviewer asks him a question about Rolling Stone magazine covers.

      Which of course gives you some idea of who the gods of this age are.

      • Randstein said,

        This sounds very interesting. Satyrs and Nymphs always led interesting lives. I am already imagining the Montana cowboy talk show host’s difficulty concentrating because he shot most of the goats he met in the mountains and now here he is with one that shoots back. Your website is a treasure trove of stories. Now, to go find some cool breeze scented incense and a copy of Rolling Stone 🙂

      ROTFL ! 😀
