Carpe Diem Extra #3, Tan Renga Challenge Month 2013

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

November will be our first Tan Renga month. I will challenge you all with an everyday Tan Renga to complete. I love to use haiku written by you all my dear Haijin, visitors and travelers for that month. So if you would like to contribute one or two haiku written by you for that new November month of Carpe Diem ... please share them in the comment field of this Carpe Diem Extra episode or  by linking your haiku for this Tan Renga month to this Carpe Diem Extra episode. It’s also possible to e-mail me at:

I have created that email-account especially for this Tan Renga Challenge month. I am looking forward to all of your wonderful haiku which I may use for this first Tan Renga Challenge month. It is possible to share your haiku for this Challengemonth until October 20th.
Hope to see a lot of your haiku for that Tan Renga month.

For closure a Tan Renga which I wrote as a tribute to my brother.

decomposed flowers
silent witness of a relative
red tear-stained eyes

looking back to better times
biking holiday with him

(In loving memory of my brother who died in 1995)
