Carpe Diem #483, Being Lazy

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Our yesterday's post 'after loving' was a bit to ... I thought, but I have read wonderful responses on this first prompt of June. I hope you did like the post and that you will gonna like this new post, being lazy.

Being lazy is a real summer-kigo, because when it's hot and the sun is shining bright than everyone likes to be lazy. Go with the flow, going on the easy way ... at least that's what I do when it's a hot summer day.

Jane gives the following examples for this kigo:

picking up sleep
where you left it at dawn
afternoon nap

sun from the east
ocean waves from the west
our entertainment

Two wonderfully composed haiku which are saying it in a nice way. I hope I can do it in the same way.
Credits: Under the sheets
midsummer night
to hot to make love with her -
just being lazy

just being lazy
laying under only a sheet
waiting for the morn

waiting for the morn
all sweaty and being lazy -
midsummer night

A nice cascading haiku I think ... even a bit like our yesterday's prompt, but that's my feeling as I read this prompt for today, being lazy.

I hope it will inspire you to write your own haiku.

This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until June 4th at noon (CET). I will post our first CD Special, an inspirational piece of music by the young Portugese composer BrunuhVille, later on today.
