Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
What a joy to create another CD Special with a haiku by our featured haiku poet this month, Richard Wright. It's his 4th haiku this month and I have read great haiku and tanka in response on his other haiku. This time I also love to challenge you a little bit.
Maybe you can remember our special feature "Soliloquy no Renga" in which I asked you to write a solo-renga with a maximum of 12 stanzas. I love to challenge you to write a Soliloquy no Renga with the haiku by Richard Wright as the "hokku" or "starting verse". (You can find the explanation of "Soliloquy no Renga" HERE)
Here is the haiku written by Richard Wright for your inspiration and to start the Soliloquy no Renga with:
The scarecrow's old hat
Into a graveyard.
