dreams and illusions

This week’s Crossroads Challenge from Carpe Diem asks us to bring together two haiku, one by Arakida Moritake (1473-1549) and the other by Jane Reichhold (1937-2016).  First, my new haiku:

high tide stroll with you

beside my bedroom window

spring winds roar in the trees

Arakida Moritake (Tr. Steven D. Carter):

A fallen blossom

returning to the bough, I thought —

But no, a butterfly.


Jane Reichhold:

morning breeze

coming in the window

surf sounds
