Carpe Diem's Crossroads #3 Rabbit Ear Iris

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

What a joy it is to read your "fused" haiku in response on this feature here at our wonderful Kai. So it seems like you all do like this feature and so here is a new episode of this special CDHK special. This time I love to challenge you to create a haiku (only haiku) through "fusion" of the following two haiku:

rabbit-ear iris
how much it looks like
its image in water

© Basho (Tr. Jane Reichhold)

And the following haiku, also by, my master, Matsuo Basho:

a silk tree
even through the leaves weary
of starlight

© Basho (Tr. Jane Reichhold)

And now it is up to you. Try to "fuse" these two haiku into a new haiku (only haiku). Have fun!

This episode of Crossroads is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until April 2nd at noon (CEST).
