Strange Leaves

pheasants at the gate
bright feathers come floating down
strange autumn leaves

There was a handsome cock pheasant in our garden this morning but he was gone by the time I grabbed the camera. This image was found on Pinterest

My response to Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #56 Crossroads

This weekend our challenge is to create a ‘fusion’ haiku from four given haiku in a Crossroads hineri episode. We may choose two or all four haiku from the selection by Basho, Issa, Buson and Shiki:

a strange flower
for birds and butterflies
the autumn sky

© Basho

the pheasant cries
as if it just noticed
the mountain

© Issa

the winter river;
down it come floating
flowers offered to Buddha

© Buson

just outside the gate
the road slopes downward
winter trees

© Shiki
