Fusion

Written for Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie.

Here are the three haiku to use for your “fusion”. Three haiku by Basho (1644-1694) in a translation by renown Jane reichhold (1937-2016):

falling sick on a journey
my dream goes wandering
over a field of dried grass *

lying down
with quilts over the head
such a cold night

a rainy day
the autumn world
of a border town


Stormy autumn winds
sweep vibrant leaves from tree limbs —
dazzling the tired earth.
Nomadic tribes wander
in search of what can be found
