Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #98 Ese's "before the dusk"

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

It's Friday again and it's time for our bi-weekly Tan Renga Challenge. This week I have a wonderful haiku for you to turn into a Tan Renga written by Ese of Ese's Voice which she composed in response on our last Tokubetsudesu episode "Crystal cobweb". I think it's a masterpiece and I also hope that it will inspire you to turn it into a Tan Renga by writing the second stanza of two lines (7-7). Here is the haiku ("hokku") written by Ese:

before the dusk
lingering in the cobweb
the last of the light

A wonderful haiku with a beautiful scenery and a lot of fragile beauty hidden in it. Really an awesome haiku to work with and turn it into a Tan Renga.

Of course I picked up the challenge myself and this is what I came up with:

Take a look at the image and see who those cobwebs look like necklaces while shimmering in the early sunlight. Look at those fragile autumn colors ... isn't it awesome?

This Tan Renga Challenge is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until next Friday September 25th at noon (CET).
