!!! Open for your submissions next Sunday August 5th at 7:00 PM (CEST) !!!
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome at a new weekend meditation here at our Haiku Kai. Last weekend I challenged you with a Troiku Challenge and I thought this weekend we will do that again, so I have another nice challenge for you to create a so called "fusion"- haiku and to create a Troiku (more on Troiku you can find above in the menu) with that "fusion"- haiku. This weekend I have chosen two beauties by Yosa Buson, also one of the five greatest haiku poets ever.
Next to haiku writing Buson was also a great haiga artist. He created the haiga of Basho's "Oku No Hosomichi" (Small Road Into The Deep North) when it was first published.

Here are the haiku to work with:
before the white chrysanthemum
the scissors hesitate
calligraphy of geese
against the sky --
the moon seals it
(C) Yosa Buson (Tr. Robert Hass)
Well two nice haiku to work with I think. And as the kanji above already says "success".
This weekend meditation is open for your submissions next Sunday August 5th at 7:00 PM (CEST) and will remain open until August 12th at noon (CEST). Have a wonderful weekend.
