“the summer moon”

Carpe Diem Crossroads #2 – The Summer Moon
This week I have chosen two beauties by two very different haiku poets from the past. The first haiku is by Kobayashi Issa:

a thousand gallons
shower from the eaves…
cherry blossoms

And here is another one, but this time written by Chiyo-Ni:

it touches the line
of my fishing pole –
this summer moon

© Chiyo-Ni

“Share your “fused” haiku (only haiku) inspired on these two classical haiku by Issa and Chiyo-Ni with us all here at our Haiku Kai.”

Here is my “fusion” haiku:

white confetti floats
under summer moon, light finds
scattered cherry blossoms

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

  1. What a joyful and fragile scene you have created with this “fusion” haiku built from the two given haiku by the two renown classics.
