Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's almost weekend and that means time for another Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation. This weekend I love to challenge you in a special way. As you all know I am the inventor of the Troiku (more on Troiku above in the menu) and I know that you all like to create Troiku. This weekend meditation you have to create a Troiku, but in another way than usually. A while ago I started Carpe Diem Crossroads, the "fusion"-haiku challenge, also a great new feature and I know you all like that feature too.
So for this weekend I will give you two haiku, as in Crossroads. You have to create a "fusion"-haiku from those two haiku and than create a Troiku with your "fusion"-haiku. A nice challenge I think fortunally you have the whole weekend to create it.
Here are the two haiku to make your "fusion"-haiku from, both haiku are by Matsuo Basho (1644-1694):
temple bells die out
the fragrant blossoms remain
a perfect evening
will we meet again
here at your flowering grave -
two white butterflies
