Carpe Diem #768 tsuyu (rainy season)

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new episode of our daily haiku meme Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. This month we are discovering all classical Japanese kigo (seasonwords) for summer and today that will be tsuyu (rainy season).

This episode will be a short one, because it's just to hot to be inside the house behind the PC, therefore I only will share a few examples of this kigo to inspire you, but I think you all are very familiar with the theme "rainy season".

tsuyu-ake ni kokoro harebare aoi sora

rainy season is over -
my heart is all shining
the sky so blue

waniguchi no nibuki hibiki ya hashirizuyu

the sound of the temple gong
so different -
rainy season is coming

(c) Uchiyama Teruhisa (Tr. Gabi Greve)

This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until July 7th at noon (CET). I will (try to) publish our new episode, niji (rainbow), later on. For now ... have fun!
