a fusion haiku featuring Ozaki Hosai

gazing from the shore

my feelings of want dissolve

with the dying light

This haiku is inspired by two haiku of Ozaki Hosai (1885-1926) who was part of the free haiku movement in Japan:

on the field

where evening has died out,

my footsteps

~

the heart

that seeks something

I release to the sea
