Challenge at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai  to create a“fusion” haiku from the given classic haiku and then create a Troiku series of three with using lines of”fusion” haiku:

the water-fowl
pecks and shivers
the moon on the waves

scooping up the moon
in the wash bassin,
and spilling it

I kept hanging the moon
on the pine tree, and taking it off,
gazing at it the while    

© Hokushi

i gaze at full moon
spilling on ripples of waves,
white egret shimmers

i gaze at full moon
rising thru pine tree’s needles,
caught in silhouette

on ripples of waves,
docked boat gently rocking as
moonlight washes shore

white egret shimmers
while pecking in moon water,
scoops up silver fish

“Tan renga” chained together for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, where Delores wrote a beautiful haiku and I was reminded of poem by Eugene Fields.


 

clouds and waves
carry my dreams away
tugging my anchor

drift along in private boat
of winkin’ blinkin’ and nod

fado (fate)

Folk music from Portugal featured on Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.


 

eyes search horizon

red sun in morning— warning

will his boat return?

 

 

still together

 

lake now mirror calm

abandoned boat rests shallowdeserted boat

ghost tree witnesses

she stood up in sudden squall

he could not swim…sky howls
