Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's my pleasure to present to you our "line-up" for our first Carpe Diem Ranga Party. There were 17 CDHK family members (including myself) who registered to participate in this Renga Party. I will publish the list somewhat later in this post. First I will tell you how this will going to work. I hope I can explain it good enough ...
In this first CD Renga Party "in the twilight" we will create a classical kasen-renga of 36 links. The first link is the so called "hokku" (starting-verse) and for this first Renga Party I have provided a haiku composed by myself:
Every link "needs" the former link, because you have to associate on the "images" in that former link to write the next link.
Of course we are not together in one room, so every participant (you all will get a "clinical" number), has to wait for his/her turn. You have a maximum of 24 hours to write/create your link and post it in the comments field beneath the post of the Renga Party. If you have written your link, please "invite" the successor poet to write his/her link with the following words (or something like that) " (name of your successor) your turn!" !! PLEASE WAIT UNTIL IT'S YOUR TURN, because you need the link before you !!
As all is going according the plan, than this Renga Party "in the twilight" will be ready around September 20th. Than I will bring all the links together and will publish our first CDHK kasen-renga "in the twilight" in a post here at CDHK.
Just a last thing before I will bring the "line-up". Because of the fact that this first Renga Party will last for somewhat a month, you can find the Renga Party above in the menu. Please write your "link" in the comments-field of that page. I hope this will become a wonderful Renga and I hope that you all did understand how it is working.
in the twilight
mist creeps over the fields -
This was the “line up” for our first Carpe Diem Renga Party. As you see you all will have two links to write and a few of you three links to write.
!! Celestine I have tried to follow your question and I think I have succeeded ... if not than please let me know.
Ok ... my wonderful loving haiku family members let’s do some Renga-ing good luck and have a lot of fun!
