Carpe Diem #1545 The Water Fowl (crossroads)

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new episode of our wonderful Kai. Today I have chosen to give you a new challenge with our special feature "crossroads". I have found a few wonderful autumn haiku written by unknown (classical) haiku poets. Let me tell you what the challenge will be: Create your "fusion"-haiku from the given haiku and than create a Troiku with the "fusion"-haiku. This time I will give you three haiku to create your "fusion" with.

pecks and shivers
the moon on the waves

in the wash bassin,
and spilling it

Moon On The Waves

I kept hanging the moon
on the pine tree, and taking it off,
gazing at it the while

Three nice haiku of autumn (sub-section: sky and elements) to work with.

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until November 21st at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new episode later on. For now ... have fun!
