mountain fog parting

mountain fog parting
dry grass where plums once blossomed
warrior longs for home

~~

sun grows while rising
mist lifting from mountain path
grass heavy with dew

I have two variations in my response to the challenge in Carpe Diem Crossroads #5 scent of plum blossoms, to write a new haiku
inspired by the words in two haiku (“fusing” them)
~ both written by Matsuo Bashō ~

summer grasses
all that remains
of warriors dreams
                    Bashō

~~~~~

scent of plum blossoms
on the misty mountain path
a big rising sun
                    Bashō
