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. 

flight of the eagle
stepping into the world of dreams –
a silent cry *

from high in the treetop nest…
the new morning sunrise guest

the moon is rising
the silvery waves resonate
in tune with my heart*

that longs to collaborate
in endless musical scores

Style & Inspiration: Tan Renga, a Japanese poetry form where two collaborate to complete a haiku followed by my two seven syllable line. Today’s feature haiku writer, *Chèvrefeuille from Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.

Dancing in Rhythm

Somehow, I inadvertently missed one Tan Renga challenge. I was going to scrap it but thought ** Kaykuala of Rainbow‘s haiku such a good one; I need to complete it with a two, seven-line completion. 

Here we go, the Tan Renga…

rustling leaves dancing
light breeze brushing rosy cheeks
young hearts aflutter**

in rhythm with pounding drums
Tahitian dance performance

Inspiration from Chevrefeuille’s Carpe Diem November Tan Renga Challenge “rustling leaves dancing.”

Style: Tan Renga, where two writers collaborate to complete a haiku with a two, seven-syllable line finish.

A Toast to Abundance

oh, sweet October…
spare thy frost on yonder grapes
our sweet summer wine**

shared at the Thanksgiving meal
toasting to life’s abundance

toast to life, thanksgiving day, abundance, celebration, october

Feed a Hungry World

Style: Tan Renga, starts as two writers collaborate to finish a **haiku. The goal, to finish a featured haiku written by one writer and completed by the second writer with two, seven-syllable lines. 

Today’s haiku comes from **Jazzbumpa or JzB from Retirement Pastels.  I keep thinking how our human connections make as all related.  I pray for our brothers and sisters affected by Typhoon Haiyan that relief and restoration come quickly.

Sweet Memories

Okay, so far I am still keeping up with Chevrefeuille’s Carpe Diem November Tan Renga Challenge and just a couple more weeks to go. 

Today’s feature haiku writer is **Managua Gunn aka Pirate from Coffee with yer Buccaneer, also the Ligo Haibun host. Remember the Tan Renga format is to complete the haiku by another writer with a two, seven-syllable cap.

sweet memories lingering
your smoldering caresses
