Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #99 crossroads of summer

!!! Open for your submissions next Sunday August 25th at 7:00 PM (CEST) !!!

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new episode of our weekend meditation feature. This weekend I love to challnege you to create a Troiku with a haiku distilled from two given haiku ... so this is a Crossroads episode. I have chosen two haiku by Jane Reichhold (1937-2016) from her online saijiki "A Dictionary of Haiku", Summer section, subsection Plants.

The task is to create a fusion haiku from the given two haiku and create a Troiku with it (more on Troiku you can find above in the menu). Here are the two haiku to work with, both by Jane Reichhold:

peeping through fog
opening to the sun

sunshine lights
on hibiscus leaves before their
own dark

Buttercups in Field

Two beautiful haiku by Jane, who is still missed dearly. Create your Troiku starting with the "fusion haiku" from the two given haiku in honor of Jane Reichhold, Queen of Haiku and Tanka.

This weekend meditation is open for your submissions next Sunday August 25th at 7:00 PM (CEST) and will remain open until September 1st at noon (CEST). Have a wonderful weekend.
