Written for:  Carpe Diem Crossroads #3 – Rabbit Ear-Iris

“This time I love to challenge you to create a haiku (only haiku) through “fusion” of the following two haiku:”

rabbit-ear iris
how much it looks like
its image in water

© Basho (Tr. Jane Reichhold)

And the following haiku, also by, my master, Matsuo Basho:

a silk tree
even through the leaves weary
of starlight

© Basho (Tr. Jane Reichhold)

Here is my “fusion” attempt:

starlight image
glitters in moonlit pool
rabbit-ear iris

About purplepeninportland

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.
