Carpe Diem #1705 enjoyment ... a modern summer kigo

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Today I have a nice challenge for you. I will give you two haiku themed "enjoyment". You have to use the both haiku to create a new "fusion" haiku. With that new haiku you have to ceate a Troiku, that nice creative poetry form (more about Troiku above in the menu). So today's challenge is a "Crossroads" feature.

Here are the two haiku (both by Jane Reichhold) to work with:

outdoor shower
bathed in sun colors
of hot water

slipping into the pool
naked divides the night
sun-warmed waters

© Jane Reichhold (Extracted from her modern saijiki "a dictionary of haiku")

The above music video is part of Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons", this part is "Summer". Just for enjoyment.

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until July 24th at noon (CEST). I will try to publish our new episode later on. For now ... have fun!
