Carpe Diem #1699 sweating

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Time for a new episode in our "summer love" month. We all are familiar with hot summer days. Those days that make you sweat like .... But ofcourse there is also that kind of sweating while having sex with the one you love in a hot summer night. That brings us back to the "summer love".

Today I love to challenge you to create a haiku or tanka in which you describe "making love in a hot summer night" ... and please try to not use the words that are used for that pleasure of love. Try to create a scenen that tells it all, but not very clear. You have to bring it like a mystery or a fantasy.

We all know that Tanka was once meant for the cause of secret love affairs. Haiku wasn't meant for that but we have seen it here often that haiku can be a love poem ... so I would say ... "make love visible without mentioning it.


This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until July 16th at noon (CEST). I will try to publish our new episode later on. Have fun!
