End of Summer is as End of Summar Does


This Haiku is in response to the prompt for the week here on Community Story Board. The title is End of Summer and I hope  you like it.

The laughter is gone,

No one is burning the steaks. . .

Look to Halloween.

About John W. Howell

I have been working in business for over forty years and now have the time to work in special areas of interest. My passion has always been to create compelling stories of fiction. I have authored two novels and am working on my third. The first novel is still in manuscript form and being utilized as a door stop in the laundry room. The second is a contemporary fiction novel of 89,000 words and is complete and I am currently seeking a publisher. I also write poetry but have not had the guts to share any with anyone. The one time I read a piece to a person their only comment was, “it doesn’t rhyme.” I will continue to write and hopefully my blog, Fiction Favorites at www.johnwhowell.com will provide some entertainment and an interesting thought or two. I live by the Gulf of Mexico with my wife Molly and an assortment of loving pets.

  1. Candy corn!! It is time for my once a year purchase of the disgustingly sweet candy corn. I buy a few bags, get grossed out and I am done – till next year!!

    By the way – I posted a big thank you blog yesterday. I would send you the link but I am on my phone. It says thanks for doing what you do and being such a great inspiration to me;)

  2. We do get halloween here in Florida…that is one cool sign of fall that we do have 🙂 Love the Haiku.

  3. I got totally distracted by the picture of the steak! Yummy. Great Haiku, John 🙂

  4. Ha. That’s about it in a nutshell. Some taste memories never go away
