even shadows wilt
in the heat of this short night
attar of roses

My response to Carpe Diem #1458 short night (mijikayo)
Our summer kigo for today is ‘short night’ (mijikayo) and we have several examples of haiku on this classical kigo, written by haiku poets of all ages. I especially like the Japanese word!
