cold raindrops falling: A Tan Renga Affair

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

marshmallow, haiku, tan renga, bonfire, writing challenge

as bonfire colors spark
another marshmallow burnt

    No fall for me this year. Just heavy rains and typhoon ahead. Is it foolish for me to think and hope for heavy storm? I want to see thunders and see if I can take pictures of it. Hehe. And, I wanna answer to a typhoon relief, ’cause part of what I do is that. Ooopsy. Evil thinking, pardon me.

      if anyone can capture a thunderstorm in a brilliant photographic series, it would be you, Rommel. no, not foolish to think and hope for heavy storms – just not too big you wash away with it before i can say, thanks! 🙂
