Carpe Diem #1212 outdoor fun

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at the first episode of our new Carpe Diem Haiku Kai month. This month we will have all classical and non-classical kigo (seasonwords) for summer. And today we will start with outdoor fun. Of course outdoor fun is not only for summer, but in the most countries the "light" part of the year (spring and summer) is the time of year were the most outdoor fun is seen. However outdoor fun can also point to the beauty of nature in summer. And for that kind of outdoor fun I have two amazing haiku by Jane Reichhold (1937-2016) for your inspiration:

finally it's Friday
the passion flower blooms
wrinkling the bedspread

crawling on the bed
tendrils of passion flowers
thick on the porch

And ... well there is also (maybe) a more erotic, sensual layer hidden in these two haiku by Jane. Well it is up to you to create haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry forms inspired on this first episode of July 2017.

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until July 7th at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new episode, change of clothes, later on.
