The goal is to write a haiku (the sleigh) and to write three new haiku (the horses) by using the three lines of the haiku (the sleigh).

over desert road

shimmering image
nesting on glass and steel
in urban canyon

mirage dissipates
as I try for a closer look
continues journey

over desert road
tsunami of tumble weeds
steady summer wave

My troiku inspired by:

kageroo ya

hoshite wa nururu

ishi no ue

heat shimmers
over the stone
(Fukuda Choyo-ni)

For Carpe Diem Haiku

  1. such an interesting way of using the ‘sleigh’.
    “tsunami of tumble weeds” is a marvellous conceit. Even more threatening if it were Japanese Knotweed 🙂
