Ok back to our Tan Renga Challenge of today. Maybe you remember Yozakura, the unknown haiku-poet who was a disciple of Basho. Last year he appeared in one of our Ghost Writer-posts. Yozakura has composed wonderful haiku and for this Tan Renga Challenge I have chosen a haiku written by him. Maybe you can recall it from the 8th episode of Haiku Writing Techniques (download at the right of your screen, or just to read above in the menu).

just the autumn wind

just the autumn wind (Yozakura)

This is what I feel as I can sit back and let the hosting of CDHK to one of our haiku kai family members. It brings me a kind of relief ... and I need that ...
