Four Seasons (illustrated by BushMaid)

Here are my haiku of the four seasons, illustrated by BushMaid:

Summer's heat shadowed
Wind swirling and rain falling
The thunderstorm comes

Leaves shiver and fall
Skeletal trees feel the chill
Animals hiding

Seeds sleep in the ground
On a dark and snowy night
Waiting for the sun

Birds chirp with gladness
Spring is painted emerald
Living things revived

"A Haiku About Haiku" and "Four Seasons"

Here's "A Haiku About Haiku":

Haiku are a form
Of Japanese poetry
As this one explains

I also wrote four haiku to represent the "Four Seasons":

Summer's heat shadowed
Wind swirling and rain falling
The thunderstorm comes

Leaves shiver and fall
Skeletal trees feel the chill
Animals hiding

Seeds sleep in the ground
On a dark and snowy night
Waiting for the sun

Birds chirp with gladness
Spring is painted emerald
Living things revived
