Carpe Diem #1700 cooling down

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at our 1700th regular episode of our wonderful Haiku Kai. This month it's all about "Summer Love" and today I have chosen for that other part of a hot summer ... cooling down. Here are a few haiku by Basho about this:

cooling one self in a rice paddy
the sound of water

a midday nap
putting the feet against the wall
it feels cool

essential to life
the little space under my hat
enjoying the coolness

© Matsuo Basho (1644-1694)

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until July 17th at noon (CEST). I will try to publish our new episode later on. For now ... have fun!
