Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #70,

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Another week has gone. Time flies ... January 2015 is closing in to it's end and we have already forgotten the last year ... we are looking forward to the upcoming of spring, but here in The Netherlands it has finally become winter with strong frost in the nights and frost at day ... it's really cold today here, but .... well it's winter ...

This week's Tan Renga Challenge starts with a haiku written by myself and I hope it will inspire you enough to write the second stanza towards it. The second stanza has two lines of approximately 7 syllables each. The second stanza is a continuation or completion of the images in the first stanza.

Here is the first stanza:

sweet perfume
mingles with the sound of rain -
a dog barks

The goal is to write a second stanza towards it by associating on the images in this haiku, or hokku (starting verse of Tan Renga).

I am looking forward to your completions or continuations. This Tan Renga Challenge is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until next Friday January 30th at noon (CET). Have fun!
