Carpe Diem Haiku *Issa ”O cooling melons!”*

Our source of inspiration on Carpe Diem today is a haiku, written by Kobayashi Issa:

* * *
if anyone comes,
turn into frogs,
o cooling melons!

* * *

The following ones are my attempt not to wander too far away from the mood and spirit of the haiku above:

* * *
trail of cool droplets
rolling down ignited skin
-melon scented ice cubes

* * *
after the storm
bouncing through the flooded field
a watermelon

* * *
