Carpe Diem's Tan Renga Challenge Month #VIII, MMT's ''even candent days''



Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Today I love to share a haiku written by Magical Mystical Teacher (MMT), Tales from a Sonoran Desert Classroom, which was written in response on "Willow Leaves'' back in last September. As you all know MMT shares wonderful haiku mostly accompanied by a wonderful photo. It's a wonderful haiku to start a Tan Renga with, so here it is:

even candent days
cannot drive the willow leaves
from their homing place


(c) MMT

And here is my attempt to complete this Tan Renga:

even candent days
cannot drive the willow leaves
from their homing place
                                      (MMT)


as the cold night falls
leaves fall one by one
                                          (Chèvrefeuille)



A nice completion I think, makes the scene complete in my opinion, but maybe you think otherwise.


Willow in Autumn

This Tan Renga Challenge will stay on until November 10th 11.59 AM (CET) and later on today I will share our new episode of our Tan Renga Challenge Month, but for now ... have fun, be inspired and share your completed Tan Renga with our Haiku Kai.
!! This Tan Renga Challenge Month episode is open for your submissions at 7.00 PM (CET) !!

PS. I have posted a new episode of ''Revise that Haiku''  earlier today, so I challenge you to ''revise'' the famous haiku by Basho ''Old Pond''.
