On Ice

Cold-blooded fish swim deep in a frozen river – eyes stare as we glide.

My response to Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #38 A Trip Along Memory Lane #1 Carpe Diem Special

In this new episode of Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation we have a new feature, Carpe Diem Special, the goal of which is to create haiku, tanka or other forms of Japanese poetry in the same tone and sense as given haiku. For this Carpe Diem Special, we have haiku written by a lesser known haiku poet: Sumitaku Kenshin (1961-1987), who wrote mostly one-lined haiku-like poems:

While lost in talking, the stars have grown more and more distinct

How happy! Bathing in the tub full to overflowing

A dragonfly, with its thin wings sick in summer

Autumn is lonely, a mosquito bites me

A lonely night, someone begins to laugh

I’ve just got home from a very hot three hour plus trip (there and back) to visit daughter and grandson – this haiku is meant to cool me down!
