Use the last line of the preceding haiku as the first line of yours.

The structure is three lines:

5 syllables
7 syllables
5 syllables

Here goes...

I toss the pebble
Ripples distort the surface
Flowing back to self

:D

Flowing back to self
Inward, or is it outward?
Enigma of life

Enigma of life
My mind reaches but it fails
The stars seem so far

The Stars Seem So Far
Invard, or is it Outward
At this moment, look

At this moment, look
The light of day fills the world
What is hidden still

What is hidden still
is the marrow of the bones,
the innermost yin.

What is hidden still?
Only what you choose not to see.
Openness transcends!

doh! ya beat me taomeow :)

the innermost yin
too much yang will obscure it
feeling, not thinking

:D

Making my way home
or making the Way my home--
who could oppose that?..

opposed to return?

current sweeps me on
like the tide
Circles and spirials


Circles and spirals
Sun sets moon rises seasons change
Retreat to return
Each day
I
maintain
my body,
only to find
the sea once more
at my sand castle.

Retreat to return
In returning I become
My vision expands
