The exercise:

After a successful night of ultimate, this week's edition of Two Haiku Tuesday is brought to you by the topic: summer frost.

My first one was inspired, once again, by work. It might be a slight exaggeration.

Mine:

Outside it's thirty
But there is frost on my desk;
Turn off the AC!

* * *

The sun is dying.
Warm summers have now become
Distant memories.

Ah, from your first haiku I would say that your office sounds perfect! Your second haiku made me think straight away of Jack Vance's Dying Earth stories; now I'll have to go home tonight and start re-reading them!

Summer frost

These summer roses
Are drawn in filigree ice
They melt as dawn breaks

--------

Playing Ultimate
When summer frost has settled
Hurts my knees too much

I haven't read the Dying Earth series. Perhaps I'll make time for that in the near... distant future.

I like the contrast between your two haiku - lovely imagery in the first, a nice dash of humor in the second.
