Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is the place to be if you like to write and share Japanese poetry forms like haiku and tanka. It’s a warmhearted family of haiku poets created by Chèvrefeuille, a Dutch haiku poet. Japanese poetry is the poetry of nature and it gives an impression of a moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water. ++ ALL WORKS PUBLISHED ARE COPYRIGHTED AND THE RIGHTS BELONG TO THE AUTHORS ++ !!!

Welcome at CDHK's Tan Renga Wednesday. First I have to apologize for not publishing. It's still busy with Covid here at work and with the "cleaning out" of my Mom's home, so I hadn't time to publish ... ofcourse that makes me sad, but ... well I can't help it.
I promised back in July that I would publish our Tan Renga Wednesday as an extra feature, so today I have a wonderful haiku for you to work with. The goal is to add the 2nd stanza of the Tan Renga that has two lines of approx. 7-7 syllabes.
At the moment we have a heat wave here in The Netherlands with temperatures rising to 35 degrees Celsius and a very moist air, so it's really hot here. So for this Tan Renga Wedensday I have chosen a haiku themed "heat wave". Here is the haiku to work with:
such a hot day my shadow needs to cool down under the willow
