Well, thought I would have to forgo this week’s Carpe Diem’s Tan Renga but I managed to clear a few items off my beloved to-do list. 🙂 Now let’s get started! The first stanza of the Tan Renga is a haiku written by Jazzbumpa (cool name, huh?) of Retirement Pastels.
Since our weather is cooling off and preparing for autumn, my mind seems to linger over nighttime gatherings with a huge bonfire roaring.
Remember, Jazzbumpa‘s (JZB) haiku starts the Tan Renga and my two, 7-7 syllable lines follow.
green leaves turn orange
amid the colors we see
cold raindrops falling
as bonfire colors spark
another marshmallow burnt
