morning dew short-lived ~ haiku

morning dew short-lived
as temperature rises
longest day arrives

as sunlight tarries
its hold on the day weakens
night waits patiently

as evening arrives
darkness finally takes over
longer nights to come

This haiku sequence is my response to
Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille – Summer Solstice
at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie.
