the day’s stagnant heat
ripples with fluid warbling
the fading blossom

My response to Carpe Diem #1463 old bush warbler (oiuguisu)
Today’s classical summer kigo is ‘old bush warbler’ (oiuguisu), also known as the Japanese nightingale. We have several examples of haiku and tanka with this kigo for inspiration.
