Starts with a sizzle
Residual heat sustains;
Slow cool to zero

  1. Great haiku. I thought we were going to have a continuation of the heat here, but the weatherman was right. It is raining now and the temperatures are cooler. Yeah.

        1. I’m in two minds whether to say what was on my mind, as explanations can fall flat… So please feel free to not read on! What I had in mind was a relationship founded on lust and passion, that never developed the friendship to sustain it beyond the physical urge, but the two never parted either, continuing a loveless dance, enmity building, literally not caring about the other partner. I wonder how many older couples who married in a generation when divorce was rare would recognise this situation…

          But it’s haiku, so any interpretation is good 🙂

            1. I remember reading magazine articles on it last year – it was about “living apart, together”. I know some people who it applies to, to some degree… like you, I couldn’t imagine it for myself
