Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge *Moritake’s “a fallen flower”*

This week Carpe Diem Tan Renga inspiration is a beautiful haiku by a Japanese poet Arakida Moritake (1473-1549) and our goal is to add a second stanza to it. Here I go:

a fallen flower
flew back to its perch
                                            a  butterfly                      (Moritake)

careless in sunlit meadow
                      cat’ s nap uninterrupted           (Ese)

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge *Lou B.’s “the gargoyle takes flight”*

Lou B of Scatterbraining in response on Haiku Shuukan prompt “gothic” had written this haiku and our goal was to add a second stanza to it. Here I go:

warm sun gold limestone
embraced by creeping shadow
                             the gargoyle takes flight               (Lou B)

through the rays of blinding light
                            eyes follow a sudden fall           (Ese)

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge *Suzanne’s “reflecting the sky”*

Suzanne of Suzanne Miller Writings has written a beautiful haiku and our goal was to add a second stanza to it. Here’ s my attempt:

reflecting the sky
rainwater in a fallen leaf
                                             – embodied light                           (Suzanne)

shiny polka dot wellies
                    ripples disapper in the puddle          (Ese)

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge *Celestine’s “ribbon of colours”*

Celestine of Reading Pleasure has written a beautiful haiku and our goal was to write a second stanza to it. I gave it a try:

ribbon of colours
streaks across the endless sky
                                                 dance of the spirits                          (Celestine)

finding paths through vivid tangles
                     careless touches of summer breeze           (Ese)
