Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's time again for a new CD Tan Renga Challenge ... time flies. For this week I have chosen a haiku composed by Managua of "Fresh From a Hermit's Forest" in response of our prompt "Raven".
As you all know the goal of this Tan Renga Challenge is to write/compose a second stanza (classical 7-7 syllables) towards the given haiku. You don't have to use the 7-7 rule, but if you would like to do so, well feel free ...
Here is the haiku by Managua which is our first stanza (5-7-5) of this Tan Renga.
let the ravens come
from the battlefield
let them smile as they pick the flesh
from the battlefield (Managua)
the sweet dreams of green grass (Chèvrefeuille)
all that remains
of warriors' dreams
