Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge *Chèvrefeuille’ s “A Dog Barks”*

This week Carpe Diem Tan Renga inspiration is a beautiful haiku, written by our Carpe Diem host Chèvrefeuille. I haven’ t written tan renga for a while therefore this seems a good time to give it a try. Our challenge is to add a second stanza (two lines of approximately 7 syllables each) to the haiku:

sweet perfume
mingles with the sound of rain –
                                                         a dog barks                       (Chèvrefeuille)

at the end of empty street
                       puddle filled with cherry blossoms              (Ese)
