dynamics of yin & yang

Meoto Iwa, or the “Loved one and loved one” Rocks, are a couple of small rocky stacks in the sea off Futami, Mie, Japan. They are joined by a shimenawa (a heavy rope of rice straw) and celebrate the union in marriage of man and woman. At low tide, the rocks are not separated by water.

Chèvrefeuille, at CDHK, offers two haiku for weekend “fusion & troiku” challenge:


between the wedded rocks

the sun rises to her highest throne

summer solstice

mountain stream

the ice has melted – dances in the sun

crystal waterdrops                                                                                   © Chèvrefeuille


My “fusion” of Chèvre’s haiku into one which lays foundation for troiku series:


rock solid marriage

mountain streams refresh the sea

sun rises, moon sets

rock solid marriage

united by rope of straw

weighty promises


mountain streams refresh

sea waves break upon the rocks

crystal droplets shine


sunset and moonrise

benediction over earth

until end of time

    Such an interesting combination: rock solid marriage united by rope of straw — from what I’ve heard and seen from long-lasting unions, though, it takes a combination of solidity and flexibility. Lovely work.
