Carpe Diem Revise That Haiku #7 Wisteria Blossom by Kiyoshi (father of Yozakura)

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

I had to distract you all a little bit from our Tanka Splendor month. This month we are all into tanka and I just had to give you a break ... just for fun.

So I present to you a new episode of our special feature "Revise That Haiku" in which I challenge you to re-create the given haiku by a wellknown haiku poet. To "re-vise" you need to read the Original haiku several times to come in tune with the scene it describes and than with that scene you have to create a new "re-vised" version of the given haiku.

For this "just for fun" break I love to challenge you to "re-vise" a haiku written by the father of Yozakura, Kiyoshi. Maybe you can remember his haiku I used it in the serial Wandering Spirit.

So here is the haiku to "revise":

only silence
the summer breeze caresses
Wisteria blossom

Have fun!

This Revise That Haiku episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will be open until next Saturday November 26th at noon (CET).
