haiku (in)fusion

 

Chèvre at CDHK challenges us to create a haiku through “fusion” of the following:

 

rabbit-ear iris

how much it looks like

its image in water

© Basho (Tr. Jane Reichhold)

And…

a silk tree

even through the leaves weary

of starlight

© Basho (Tr. Jane Reichhold)

 

My “fusion: of the two:

rabbit-ear iris

bends weary leaves toward water

silk reflects starlight

© lynn__

 

 

crossroads

Connecting with Carpe Diem Haiku Kai prompt on the silk road…

 

silk road caravans

spread three major religions

passing through desert

risk trade of valued treasure

thirsty souls seek higher goal
