Scent of Home

a warrior dreams
mountain path leading homeward
scent of plum blossom

My response to Carpe Diem’s Crossroads #5 scent of plum blossoms

In a new episode of the CD ‘fusion’ feature, Crossroads, our challenge is to create a new haiku from two given haiku by Basho:

summer grasses
all that remains
of warriors dreams

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