Carpe Diem''s Tan Renga Challenge Month #XI, Ese''s ''fog over empty pond''

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

I hope you still like this Tan Renga Challenge Month as I do, because it isn''t easy to complete the Tan Renga. Today we have another nice Tan Renga Challenge. It''s started by Ese of Ese''s Voice and she wrote this haiku in response on our classical Japanese kigo Kari (Goose) back in September. I think it''s a nice haiku to start a Tan Renga with and I hope to read wonderful completed Tan Renga.

in wingspans of migratory geese
farewell to summer

fog over empty pond

See the scene in front of your mind''s eye ... it''s really a nice image ....
No ... attempt by me this episode, because of lack of time, but I will for sure share my completed Tan Renga on one of my other weblogs and link it to this episode. Have fun, be inspired and share. This Tan Renga Challenge episode will stay on ''til November 13th 11.59 AM (CET) and is now open for your submissions.
