Cactus Spines

cactus spines
prick the soft sunbeam

This haiku represents the dying moments of the summer vac. It was sunshine on a very late Sunday afternoon in early October, Michaelmas term and all its attendant chaos about to break down the door.

I sat at the tea-table, for just a moment, bidding goodbye to the summer.
