Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Time isn't at my side this day. I had a very busy schedule, so I hadn't enough time to create a long episode for our daily haiku meme, but (finally) I have found a little time to create this new episode.
Today our prompt is Mugiwara boushi (strawhat) and I have made it myself a little bit easy. I have used part of another weblog I have for this episode. Sometimes there is no need to invent the wheel again (smiles).

enjoying the coolness

my shadow needs to cool down
under the willow
the shadow of the willows
Ah! that coolness
my space of shade
I hope you enjoyed this little episode and of course I hope it will inspire you to write an all new haiku or tanka and share it with us.
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until July 13th at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new episode, Funsui (fountain), later on. For now ... well I don't need to say that I think, but nevertheless I will say it ... have fun!
