how to ride a heat wave

Create a fusion haiku from these 2 classics, then write a troiku for CDHK…

 

blue autumn skies
folded into mountains
purple shadow

© Jane Reichhold (1937-2016)

such a hot day
my shadow needs to cool down
under the willow

© Kyoshi Takahama (1874-1958)

 

my “fusion” haiku:

 cloudless sapphire skies
sun casts shadows of heatwave
mountain willow shade

© lynn__

my “troiku” series:

cloudless sapphire skies
left camp early to climb peak
perfect summer day

sun casting shadows
of hikers on rocky path
break into a sweat

mountain willow shade
rest to unpack picnic lunch
inhale alpine air

    You’re much more energetic than me. Siesta is all I can manage.
