Carpe Diem's Tan Renga Challenge #20, Joanne's "Autumn Leaves"


Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Another week has gone by and so it's time for a new Tan Renga Challenge. This week's Tan Renga Challenge is started with a haiku by Joanne of 4Joy. She wrote it in response on Garry Gay's 4th Special and it's a stunning haiku. The goal is to write the second stanza (7-7) to this Tan Renga started by Joanne. You don't have to stay to the classic rules of haiku writing, but feel free to do so.



Stanza 1 (5-7-5):

autumn leaves
myriad shades red and gold
begin to fall as snow  
                                (Joanne)

Stanza 2 (7-7):

???????????????????
???????????????????

A wonderful haiku to start this Tan Renga with ... so I hope that it will inspire you to complete this Tan Renga with your second stanza. Good luck ... and have fun ...

My attempt:

autumn leaves
myriad shades red and gold
begin to fall as snow
                              (Joanne)

at the feet of the snowman
a glimpse of the first crocus
                    (Chèvrefeuille, your host)


Crocus in the snow
This Tan Renga Challenge will stay on 'til November 1st 11.59 AM (CET) I will post a new Tan Renga Challenge then, from our November Tan Renga Challenge month prompt-list around 7.00 PM (CET)
