Oh to be cool
Hot days dream of icy lake
Skate into the spray

Poem Copyright, © 2015 Jimmiehov

Today I'm linked with  
at Carpe Diem Special #125, Sogi's first "this autumn sky"

Kristjaan wants us to write in the vein opened by Iio Sogi, a pre-Basho haiku poet.  Here is a model for us, one of his works (I believe that his early copyright has expired by now). 

ah, for coolness,
it rivals the water's depth -
this autumn sky

(in my PJs)
Me?  I got cooled off
just going out this morning
getting the paper
