Summer Nights

Summer night -
even the stars
are whispering to each other

Kobayashi Issa

  1. I'm looking forward to summer nights filled with the sounds and sights of fireworks as well as the smells of Japanese festival food :)

  2. So I start catching up with blogs, as I do so rarely nowadays, and this is the second blog post I read, and ...

    Wow. So beautiful. I didn't know this haiku.

    I'm so glad it's summer. I went for a walk this morning, and it was hot and a bit humid, and I was sweaty & sticky & probably smelly GRIN! when I got home. My wristwatch tan line is deepening gradually. Windows are open.

    Life is good.

    1. I have a confession. I just googled for Issa's summer haiku and one of them was the one I posted here. Hihihi

      AM I allowed to not be happy that you're enjoying Japan's summer?

      Hmph. *grins*

  3. Aren't you going to Japan again this year? You must be having severe withdrawal symptoms by now.

    1. I've had withdrawal symptoms the moment we returned to Malaysia after our vacation in Japan way back in 2011! LOL
