Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Another week has gone ... time flies ... I had a busy week, but that's no problem. Time is always on my side, sometimes ... I have lack of time, but I think everyone of us will have sometimes lack of time ... well that's life isn't it?
This week's Tan Renga Challenge is a bit different with the other weeks. This week I love to share a haiku by Arakida Moritake (1473-1549), a Japanese poet who also wrote haiku (in his time it was called haikai or hokku). I remember that the first haiku I read was a Dutch translation of a wonderful haiku written by Moritake. I think that you know this haiku, because it's a wellknown haiku.
