Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
I was flabbergasted as I read all of your responses on this new feature "Crossroads" in which I challenge you to create (only) haiku inspired on two or more given haiku (sometimes a "normal" poem, a sedoka or a tanka). A kind of "fusion" haiku so to say. So I think I will try to make this feature a weekly one. So this week I have another nice challenge for you.
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...
|Statue of Chiyo-Ni|
And here is another one, but this time written by Chiyo-Ni:
it touches the line
of my fishing pole -
this summer moon
