Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome at a new episode of our wonderful Haiku Kai were we are "honoring" haiku, the most beautiful poem on Earth.
Today I love to challenge you to "revise" a haiku by one of the classical masters, Masaoka Shiki (1867-1902). Shiki was the haiku-master that gave haiku its name and he was the one that brought haiku into the 20th century.
Here is the haiku to "revise":
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 December 2nd at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new episode later on. For now ... have fun!
