Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome at a new episode of our TRC month September 2018. A few days ago I challenged you to create the first stanza (hokku) of the Tan Renga inspired on the 2nd stanza given by me. I have another Hineri TRC for you today. This time I have chosen a quote by Masaoka Shiki and reworked it to a 2nd stanza. The goal is to create the first stanza of this Tan Renga.
Here is the re-worked quote by Shiki. I have turned it into the 2nd stanza to work with:
pear tree in full bloom on a battlefield
collapsed house becomes beautiful again
© Shiki (re-worked by Chèvrefeuille)
|Pear Tree In Bloom (woodblock print by Kono Bairei)|
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until September 18th at noon (CEST). I will try to publish our new episode later on. Have fun!
