Today’s Carpe Diem Haiku prompt is Chèvrefeuille’s ‘under the willow’:
such a hot day
my shadow needs to cool down
under the willow
A wonderful Haiku by Chèvrefeuille, which immediately made me think of one I’d written for the prompt Willow previously:
But this prompt is as much about the hot day as it is the willow methinks. So here’s an image from a 38c day this summer at Mooloolaba Beach.

For my followers in the UK, I’ll explain ‘cold beer’ later. But I’ve posted both of these before, so here’s a new one that attempts to show just how hot an Aussie summer day can get…
Aussie summer day
when the heat pulls no punches
the wise Roos snooze
So my friends, thank you once again for calling in to see me. I hope that you’re rested and at least a little refreshed.
Smiles, love and laughter
