showers in the night
lone cloud courting night crescent
each drop holds a moon
The challenge in Carpe Diem Crossroads #2 the summer moon is to write
a new haiku inspired by the words in two classic haiku (“fusing” them).
a thousand gallons
shower from the eaves…
it touches the line
of my fishing pole –
this summer moon
I have taken it one step further by revising each of the original haiku,
an exercise that Kristjaan sometimes offers at Carpe Diem.
drumming on cottage roof
my pole bent by hungry fish
ripples in the moon
