Written for: Chèvrefeuille’s Gift to You to Celebrate our First Luster of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai #3 Haiku Puzzler
In this week’s “Chevrefeuille’s Gift To You To Celebrate Our First Luster Of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai” I have “invented” a new special feature. I have called it “Haiku Puzzler”. The goal is to re-create the scrambled haiku of three haiku poets, but to make it somewhat more difficult, I have used four scrambled haiku.
Below you find an image in which you can find all the lines of these three haiku. To find the three haiku you get three hints:
1. This haiku poet brought haiku into the 20th century by mentioning a modern invention.
2. This haiku is renown all over the globe.
3. At the end of the life of a haiku poet the custom was to write a Jisei (death-poem). This is the jisei of a famous female poet.
To make the “haiku puzzler” complete you have to submit the three found haiku including the name of the haiku poet.
I am only sure of my first one!

frog jumps into
the sound of water ~Basho
having gazed at the moon
I depart from this life
with a blessing ~Jane Reichhold
smoke whirls after
the passing of a train–
spirit climbs to the sky ?
I added this fourth one:
