Rabbit Ear Iris

starlit looking glass
ripples distort the surface
your face an iris

Kim M. Russell, 2018

My response to Carpe Diem’s Crossroads #3 Rabbit Ear Iris

In today’s episode of this CDHK special feature, our challenge is to create a haiku by ‘fusing’ the following haiku by Basho:

rabbit-ear iris
how much it looks like
its image in water


a silk tree
even through the leaves weary
of starlight
