Relief

Written for:  Carpe Diem #773 Mugiwara boushi (straw hat)
Write a poem in the same sense, tone, and spirit as:

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

© Basho (Tr. Jane Reichhold)

Some examples:

such a hot day
my shadow needs to cool down
under the willow

© Chèvrefeuille (our host)

Another one with the same theme:

hot summer day
the shadow of the willows
Ah! that coolness

© Chèvrefeuille (our host)

some relief comes
on this hot, dry evening
Tickle of a breeze

© Sara McNulty

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
