Haiku For Carpe Diem #210, Mijikayo (short night)

The Carpe Diem Haiku prompts are back to classical  kigo (seasonwords) for June, with this one being Mijikayo (short night).

In the blink of an eye the shortest night was here and then gone. I’m playing catch up today, but I hope you enjoy my shortest ‘nights…


on the shortest night
the busy owl gives thanks –
for the longest day


your first child
teaches you about
the shortest night!



at summer solstice
the seven kingdoms party
like the shortest knight

A hearty cheers to Tyron Lannister and to you my friend 🙂

Smiles, love and laughter

  1. Better late than never JRB and you share a nice trio of haiku here. I like the first the most, but that second … I can relate too very well.

    Was thinking I somehow missed you on this prompt. Love the owl and related haiku. Shortest night above the photo made me laugh but it’s beneath such a wonderful photo ♥
