Carpe Diem's Crossroads #11 "a winter's love"

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

A few minutes ago I realised that I hadn't published a new "crossroads" episode so I will create one for you right now. I was busy to write a new episode of "Heeding Haiku With ..." for Mindlovemisery's Menagerie about haiku as a "love poem". So Ithought 'I am going to challenge you all with a new "crossroads" episode about LOVE. I ran through the archives of CDHK and ran into a nice set of "love-haiku" written by myself.

I will give you the two "love-haiku" immediately after this: I think (and you all know that) haiku can also be used as a "love poem" like tanka.

a winter's love

wandering about the nude beach
in heart of winter

Well ... I think you all know what the goal is of "crossroads"? You have to create a so called "fusion-haiku", create a new haiku based on the two given haiku.

This "crossroads" episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until June 12th at noon (CEST). Have fun!
