Black Forest

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1596 – Black Forest

“Today I love to challenge you to create a “fusion-ku” with the two given haiku Jane Reichhold. The modern kigo for today is “Black Forest” and here are the haiku to work with:”

black forest
night extinguishes
the snow

sun and snow
still in the pines
the black forest

© Jane Reichhold (Extracted from her “A Dictionary of Haiku”, a modern saijiki)

Here is my humble attempt to create a “fusion-ku” with these two haiku by Jane:

pines covered with snow
the sweet perfume melts in the sun
ah! listen … that dripping

© Chèvrefeuille  (our host)

Here is my attempt:

magic of black forest
snow is heard but not seen
pines black at night
