Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge Month May 7th a haiku by Tomas Tranströmer

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Today I love to challenge you to create a Tan Renga based on a haiku by Tomas Tranströmer. Maybe you can remember him as one of our featured haiku poets in 2015.
Tomas has won the Literature Prize of Nobel's Institute for his haiku and what he has meant for this short poem in Sweden and all over the world.
A short episode I think, but I hadn't time enough to create this post.
Here is the "hokku", the haiku by Tomas Tranströmer:

A dragonfly pair
fastened to one another
went flickering past

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until May 11th at noon (CET). Have fun! I have posted the haiku for the Tan Renga Challenge May 8th, a haiku by Issa. You can find that haiku at our Twitter account..
