Carpe Diem #1845 Troiku Challenge: Summertime
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Sorry it didn't go very well. I had hoped to post every day again, but don't have time enough. So today I decided to create you a new Troiku Challenge. More about Troiku you can find in the menu above.
I have chosen the theme Summertime for this Troiku Challenge, because here in The Netherlands we have a very warm, say hot, time with temperatures rising above 30 degrees Celsius, so yes it is Summertime here.
Summertime: Sun bathing, warm weather, heatwave, beaches and more to associate with Summertime. But for this episode it's just a haiku written by me, your host, to work with.
at the seashore
wind of summer through my hair
the shortest night
The shortest night will be this weekend, than summer really starts on the Northern Hemisphere.
I think this haiku is great to create a Troiku with. Enjoy my dear Haijin.
This Troiku Challenge will be open until June 23rd 10:00 PM (CEST). You can add your submission to the linking widget below, hidden in our logo.
