Infused with Jasmine

sweet reflections
willow in a crystal brook
infused with jasmine

sweet reflections
leaves stirred by the ebb and flow
drifting memories

willow in a crystal brook
its branches bent and dripping
the weight of water

infused with jasmine
green leaves and shadows shimmer
merging with time

My response to Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #54 Crossroads Crystal Brook (troiku)

In this weekend’s meditation we have an all new episode of the special feature ‘Carpe Diem Crossroads’, in which we create a new haiku (ONLY haiku) inspired by two or more poems, for example two haiku, one haiku and one tanka, or one haiku and a sedoka. We have to create your new ‘fusion’ haiku from the given poems:

crystal brook
reflects the willow trees
birds sing their song

sweet perfume
memories of a loved one
Jasmine blossom

For this weekend meditation, the challenge has a twist: we also have to create a Troiku with our ‘fusion’ haiku.
