Written for:  Carpe Diem Crossroads #9 – Ozaki Hosai’s “on the field”

“Ozaki Hosai has written nice haiku in my opinion, but I think you, my dear haijin, visitors and travelers, can create a wonderful “fusion” haiku with the following haiku by him:”

on the field
where evening has died out,
my footsteps

the heart
that seeks something
I release to the sea

© Ozaki Hosai (revised by Chèvrefeuille)


left in the sand of time
sound of waves

© Chèvrefeuille (our host)

Here is my attempt:

evening quiets
light touch of sandy footprints 
on trail to the sea


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.
