Photo Challenge #69, Illumine

I have done this earlier on my personal weblog and this photo-challenge on MindLoveMisery's Menagerie caught my eye as I was visiting MLMM. This photo is by "5 letters" and is titled falltuer
The goal of this photo-challenge is to write a short story or a poem inspired on the photo.

Let me first take a closer look at the photo. What do I see? It's evening. I see a Ferries Wheel and at the bare branches hang paper lanterns. As I see the bare branches I think it's autumn, but it also could be winter or early spring. So it will not be easy to write a haiku ...

Here is my attempt to write a haiku towards this photo and I think it fits the photo ...

music resonates through the night
lanterns burn

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.

If you like to write and share haiku than feel free to visit my daily haiku-meme Carpe Diem Haiku Kai and participate.
