Carpe Diem #1687 Troiku Month (16) Heat Waves

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new episode of our Troiku Month. I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend full of inspiration and that your muses have helped you to create your weekend meditation. Today here in The Netherlands we have had the first day of a heat wave. Tropical temperatures are normal here nowadays. Today it was at least 30 degrees Celsius and some parts of my country almost 35 degrees Celsius. This week that kind of temperatures will be here every day with a top on next Wednesday were they even expect 40 degrees Celsius. Not my kind of heat by the way, but well ... the weather does what it wants.

For today's Troiku I have chosen a nice haiku by Jane Reichhold (1937-2016) themed "heat waves". I thought that it fits the weather here in the Lowlands.
