A kigo is a season word, bring a description and feeling of the time of year it represents. It’s also a key peace of Japanese haiku. In this set of distinct haiku, I use the kigo, shinryoo (coolness) to herald my favorite of the four seasons.
Streams born from mountains
Bringing new coolness
Showing marked coolness
She turns, leaving in splendor
Goodbye, sweet Summer
Wood’s canvas brightly painted
Beauty and coolness
