my shadow needs to cool down

Kristjaan at Carpe Diem has invited us to create a Tan Renga with the given haiku by Kyoshi Takahama (1874-1958). A Tan Renga is a short, chained poem written by two poets. It looks very similar to a Tanka, but a Tanka is written by one poet.
We wish you all a happy Monday and a blessed week ahead,
with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
