castaway

Carpe Diem “Crossroads” challenge to fuse two haiku into one.

Ozaki Hosai

on the field
where evening has died out,
my footsteps

the heart
that seeks something
I release to the sea

fading with daylight

washed to sea by searching tide

footprints of the heart

Mastodon and pussycat went to sea

in a canoe without any oars.

Said Mastodon to Kitty, “Isn’t it pretty,

this mirrored reflection of stars?”

Replied puss to pachyderm,

“Move a little astern, your trunk

is blocking my view.”

So he took a step back but,

alas and alack! stars scattered

as boat tipped in deep blue…

 

…which may be why mastodons are extinct and cats hate water 😉

verdant succulent

thrives beside the salty sea
