Haiku Puzzler

Chèvrefeuille's Gift to You to Celebrate our First Luster of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai #3 Haiku Puzzler


Our host has given this assignment:
Below you find an image in which you can find all the lines of these three haiku. To find the three haiku you get three hints:

1. This haiku poet brought haiku into the 20th century by mentioning a modern invention.

2. This haiku is renown all over the globe.

3. At the end of the life of a haiku poet the custom was to write a Jisei (death-poem). This is the jisei of a famous female poet.

To make the "haiku puzzler" complete you have to submit the three found haiku including the name of the haiku poet.

Have fun!

Here is our first "Haiku Puzzler":

I had arranged the different lines into what I thought were the correct groupings.  I had two correct with only one line each of the remaining two that had to be swapped.  One of the poets, Basho, was obvious.  But the other three required research to accredit each of the haiku.  It was a fun exercise for Mother's Day here in the US.  Thank goodness for google!

  2. You did great Janice. I understand that our family members had fun too with this "haiku puzzler", but it wasn't easy.
