Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It was a real joy to make this month of Carpe Diem and it's a joy to read all of your comments and submissions. As we have every week it's time for a new Tan Renga Challenge.
This week I have chosen a haiku written by Celestine of Reading Pleasure. Celestine wrote this haiku in response on the Haiku Shuukan weekly meme's prompt festival. I think it's a wonderful haiku and it's a nice one to start a Tan Renga with.
The goal of this Tan Renga Challenge is to write a second stanza (classical 7-7 syllables, but that's no obligation) to it by associative thinking. The goal to make the Tan Renga complete. It's a nice way of writing together. Tan Renga looks very similar to Tanka, but it's written by two poets and not by one.
Here is the haiku composed by Celestine to create a second stanza for:
ribbon of colours
dance of the spirits
|Credits: Colorful ribbons|
streaks across the endless sky
dance of the spirits (Celestine)
through the ancient city streets (Chèvrefeuille)
