Well hello November. I know I should push towards a new blog challenge. You know, to stay motivated and charming (laughing).
Okay, how about a Tan Renga every day?
For those not familiar, Tan Renga comes from the Japanese poetry form where two writers collaborate to complete a chosen haiku. The first writer sets the tone with either a traditional or contemporary style haiku. The second writer finishes or caps the haiku with two, seven-syllable lines.
Today, Jessica | Like an Apple is the featured haiku writer followed by my two completion lines. Thank you Jessica!
wind jostles the scarecrow
near the heavy – hung cornstalks
the summer is spent
you with outstretched loving hands
harvest earth’s bountiful gifts
Now that a season is slowly turning to the next, what are some seasonal things you will miss once it is gone?
(I already miss summer’s sweet and juicy watermelons!)
