    Wonderful one line haiku!!!

    The phrase "I turn" or "I turn into" is a fascination moment when we can be transformed, and the power of nature, in your case, it's Summer, which is kinda extending the warmer end of Spring into a brand new season. And of course we need to renew ourselves alongside each season.

    For me, as much as I love late Spring, and then Summer bringing "on the green" it's actually snow that I turn to, for comfort, transformation, inspiration, and a return to childhood:

    Thank you, Alan. You comments and ku inspire me.

    I rarely write haiku with a summer motif.

    Something I (re)learn when putting together a new haiku collection.

    snow swirl; within each dizzy flake; seasons change.
