a distant mountain

Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #40 Troiku Challenge "a distant mountain"

" ...For this Troiku Challenge I have chosen two haiku by Takahama Kyoshi (1874–1959) to work with. Kyoshi is not a renown haiku poet, but he has written wonderful haiku. (You can find more of his haiku HERE).

seen in the sunlight:
a desolate field

has fallen
in the sunlight

Two nice haiku. Not easy to work with I think, but ... I think you can do it. Create a "fusion"-haiku from these two haiku and than create a Troiku with your "fusion"-haiku...."

a small leaf
held against the sunlight
distant mountain view

a small leaf
   gently drifts across the 
         the sunrise

against the sunlight
    Orion moves unseen
          sky hunter

distant mountain
    viewed from the desolate plane
          gave hope
