In this heat

my body is a compass needle,

aimed at cool water.

    Oh send some our way…we only know it is summer in the UK because the calendar says so…

  5. Cool does not always mean north.

  6. Super!! I am wondering why you didn’t make it a complete haiku. It is wonderful anyway.

What do you think?
