Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge September 2018 Chained Together III (18) Grass On River Bank (Ken Gierke)

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

September 2018, our Tan Renga Challenge Month, is running towards its end and we have only four (4) regular posts to go. I have tried to give you an every day challenge with haiku by classical and non-classical haiku poets and by challenging you a little bit more through the Hineri episodes, as we had yesterday.

Today I have a wonderful haiku by Ken Gierke of RivrVlogr. He wrote this one in response on our first episode of "quest for a (new) masterpiece" back in May 2018. Ken is one of the haiku poets who visits CDHK very often and I am glad he does, because his Troiku are really awesome. Yes Ken is an awesome haiku poet. Thank you Ken that you are a participant of CDHK and I hope you appreciate my choice of your haiku here to create a Tan Renga with.


Here is the haiku by Ken to work with:

grass on river bank
bending over in warm breeze
pale moon looking down

Well ... a beautiful haiku I would say ... a really nice one to work with.

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until October 1st at noon (CEST). I will try to publish our new episode later on. For now ... have fun!
