Carpe Diem #1681 Troiku Month (10) moonlit night

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

I hope you all enjoy this month full of that beautiful new creative way of haiku-ing ... Troiku. To me it's an honor to make this month, because I invented that new creative way of haiku-ing. It makes me proud to see and read all of your wonderful Troiku. Tahnk you all for that.

Today I have chosen a haiku by Masaoka Shiki (1867-1902). Shiki was the poet who gave haiku its name and he brought haiku into the 20th century. He wrote wonderful haiku in which he often used the modern industrial inventions of his lifetime e.g. steam engines. In the haiku I have chosen you can find that too.

This is the haiku to work with:

the wild geese take flight
low along the railroad tracks
in the moonlit night

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until June 20th at noon (CEST). I will try to publish our new weekend meditation later on. For now ... be inspired and have fun!
