Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Weekend Meditation Summer 2022: #1 Sunrise (Crossroads Challenge)


Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

It is almost Summer 2022 (on the Northern Hemisphere) and to give you all the opportunity to create haiku this summer I have created this CDHK Weekend Meditation Summer 2022. I will create every weekend, mostly on Friday evening, an episode of this Summer 2022 Weekend Meditation, 

For this first Summer 2022 Weekend Meditation I have chosen the theme Sunrise (a Crossroads Challenge). A Crossroads Challenge means that I will give you two haiku. With those two haiku you have to create a new haiku. With that "third" haiku I challenge you to create a Troiku (more about the Troiku you can find above in the menu or by clicking HERE).

Here are the two haiku to work with, both are created by Jane Reichhold (1937-2016) and are extracted from her online "Dictionary of Haiku":

naked divides the night

Try to create a "fusion" of the both haiku to create the third haiku to work with, ofcourse you can also create a new haiku associated on the two given haiku. With that third haiku you have to create a Troiku. In short that means, create a new haiku with every separated line. The result of this Crossroads Challenge will be "four" new haiku in total.

This Summer 2022 Weekend Meditation is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until Monday May 23rd at 10:00 PM (CEST). Have fun! You can add your submission to the Linking Widget hidden in our Logo below.
