Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #79, Ese's "through the darkest hour"

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

It is Friday again and so it is time again for a new Tan Renga Challenge here at our Haiku Kai. Every Friday (mostly) I have such a challenge and last week we had a nice classical haiku Shoha and this week I have a wonderful haiku by one of our Haiku Family members ... Ese of Ese's Voice.

The goal of this Tan Renga challenge is to continue or complete a Tan Renga, a two chained haiku poem, which is started by one of our classical haiku-poets or a non-classical haiku poet as is today.

Ese wrote this haiku in response on "Starry Night" a painting by Van Gogh which we had for prompt in February 2015.
And now it's the goal to complete this Tan Renga with a two-lined stanza of 7-7 syllables, however there is no need to use that strict syllables count.

Here is my attempt to complete this Tan Renga

through the darkest hour
every tree top in the forest
adorned with a star

new years celebrations
lightshow against the dark sky

Well I hope you all did like this episode of our Tan Renga Challenge and I hope it will inspire you all to continue or to complete the Tan Ranga started by Ese. Have fun!

This episode is open for your submissions today at noon (CET) and will remain open until next Friday April 10th at noon (CET).

  1. I love reading all the entries after I've written mine. It amazes me how similar and yet different all of the "takes" on the same prompt are, especially in the tan renga.
