Carpe Diem #1553 waving the pampas grass (crossroads)

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

I had a very busy day today, because I had to arrange some things for my new job at the University Hospital were I will start Friday December 7th at the Hematology unit. But now back to our prompt for today. As you have read in the title I have a nice crossroads episode for you.

I have found two nice (modern) haiku by two different haiku poets that died in the last century. I will give you the two haiku and than I challenge you to create a fusion ku with it and if you like ... you can also create a Troiku with your fusion ku, but that's not necessary.

Waving the pampass grass,
At the Shinjuku station,
I said goodbye.

The migratory birds
Make the wind blowing down to Asaka
From mountains frequently.

Two nice haiku by two not so renown haiku poets to work with. Enjoy the fun!

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until December 3rd at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new episode later on.
