taste and smell

Carpe Diem #939 Old Pond

In this Haiku Writing Technique  we have to switch between senses . And it is not an easy task
In the words of Christjaan ,
” this is a favorite of the Japanese poetry masters, but one they used with a great deal of discretion. It is simply to speak of the sensory aspect of a thing and then change in another sensory organ. Usually it involves hearing something one sees, or switching between seeing and tasting. ”
Since yesterday , I was pondering about sounds , visions , smell and taste . And the end result attempt , following the path of the master, Basho is this :

burning  pea leaves smell
if I make lye from the ashes
ah ! the taste of ramen
