The New Morning

It has been awhile since my last Tan Renga and Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is hosting a challenge until January 31st, so let me add one to the list.

Remember the Tan Renga includes two writers, in this case, *Chevrefeuille’s haiku followed by my two, seven-syllable stanza to make the Tan Renga complete.

stepping into the world of dreams –
a silent cry *

from high in the treetop nest…

did not start enlightened
he walked the path**

wiped clean each hazy smudge marks
strolled with clear visions
