warm afternoon
the pear tree's shade
in the neighbor's yard

    I like this... Your haiku gave me an image of summer's beauty as well as a sense of personal isolation (the shade being in someone else's yard), but I can also see how it could emphasize the connection between all people (you joined to your neighbor by the shade of the tree), and perhaps even the union between people and nature. Or a commentary on the unifying power of nature. Whew, that was a mouthful! ;) Anyway,a good poem. Thank you.

    possibilities

    i'll do "my" remake, first.

    sunny afternoon
    my pear tree's shades...(if we're sharing)
    neighbor's yard


    "warm" doesn't automatically transition to "shade"

    well, "i think" the remake speaks for itself.

    less at times, best...

    rain
    the neighbour's boy
    collects only the clothes he could reach

    summer afternoon -
    open fridge door
    mango fragrance wafts cross the room

    Against the evening
    the shadow of a tree crossing
    the borderline

    hot aroma of my neighbor's
    evening meal --
    comes through my window
