Carpe Diem Haiku Kai's Kingyo (Goldfish)
Good day dear friends and followers,
It's a while ago that posted here on my personal weblog, because of lack of time ... Today I love to share a haiku based on the "Midsummer Feeling" prompt "Gingyo or Goldfish" as is the prompt for today at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.
It's not a very easy prompt I think, so I will try to write an all new haiku with (hopefully) goldfish in it or else Koi or Carp ... I just have to give it a try.

This haiku is part of a haibun which I wrote several years ago. That haibun was based on Basho's famous haibun "The Narrow Road Into the Deep North" and was written in Dutch. I have tried to translate it, but that takes to much time, so maybe ... later I will translate it.
Well ... I hope you did like the read.
