The goal for this new feature is to write the second stanza of the Tan Renga by associating on a stanza given by one of the classical masters, modern haiku poets or by myself. For this first episode I have chosen another wonderful haiku written by Jane Reichhold.
In your posts for this Tan Renga feature you need to copy the given stanza. So we can see and read it in one Tan Renga. So copy the given stanza and fill in your second stanza. Well ... we will see how this is gonna work out. I hope you all understand what the goal is of this new feature? Just to write together a Tan Renga.
OK ... this is the first stanza:
scattered in sand
embers of a saltwood fire
face to face with stars
[ ... ] your stanza ??????
Have fun, be inspired and enjoy this nice way of composing Tan Renga with eachother ... You can post your Tan Renga (the verse of Jane + your 7-7 stanza) until June 15th 11.59 AM (CET). I am looking forward to all of your wonderfully composed Tan Renga.
