Carpe Diem Special *Lolly’s “another anchor thread”*

Our inspiration on Carpe Diem Special this week is a tanka, written by a very gifted haiku poetess Laura Williams a.k.a. Lolly of Lovely Things:

* * *
sifting through
the personal effects
of a spider’s web
an autumn wind loosens
another anchor thread

* * *


Here’ s what came to my mind after reading hers:

* * *
entangled footprints
fading on the bare shore
summer’ s last haiku

* * *

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge *Becca Givens’ “Red Leaf Falls”*

This week Carpe Diem Tan Renga inspiration is a beautiful haiku, written by Becca Givens of “On Dragonflies Wings With Buttercup Tea”. Our goal is to add a second stanza to it.

nature sleeps
carpet of silent snow
                                            red leaf falls                           (Becca)

lone silhouette disappears
               between  bare trees. only footprints     (Ese)
