Carpe Diem #1462 thin clothes (usumono)

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

In winter we are wearing warm clothes, mostly made from thick fabrics, but as summer comes we change our clothes to more thin fabricated ones, because in the warmth, heat of summer that will keep us cool. Nowadays that custom is still in use I think, but ... maybe you are not someone that uses this custom.

Today's classical summer kigo is thin clothes (usumono) and I think it's an kigo we can work with. Today's episode will not be a long one, because of lack of time. So I leave you with this classical summer kigo: thin clothes (usumiono).

For our friends on the Southern Hemisphere I have another nice winter kigo: yellowtail (buri). Seliola quinqueradiata
