Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #92, Chiyo-Ni's "Morning glory"

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

It's Friday again ... so it's Tan Renga time. This week's Tan Renga to complete is a haiku by Chiyo Ni, a wellknown haiku poetess who wrote her haiku in the way of Basho.
For this Tan Renga challenge I have chosen one of her most known haiku 'morning glory'. A real beauty.
It's your task to complete the tan renga by writing the second stanza towards it. This 2nd stanza has two lines with approximately 7 syllables each. A completed Tan Renga looks like a tanka, but is written by two poets.

asano eikou yoku baketto entanguru watashiha mizuwo motomeru

morning glory!
the well bucket-entangled,
I ask for water

just a day,
along the path to the cloister,
a single Morning Glory

This Tan Renga Challenge is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until next Friday July 10th at noon (CET).. Try to complete the Tan Renga by writing the second stanza. Have fun!

  1. I am gobsmacked by that picture: that is one I would love to have taken. Glorious. My packet of Morning glory seeds is still lying on the kitchen table : I don't think they are going to flower this season :-)
