Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome at a new episode of our Tan Renga Challenge Month 2017. Today I have a nice haiku by Murakami Kijo (1865-1938). He was a contemporary of Shiki and was influenced by the style of Shiki's haiku.
Maybe you can remember our Tan Renga Challenge Month of 2016 or maybe the weekly Tan Renga Challenge in 2016. In that month we have had also a haiku by Murakami Kijo. The "hokku" for today's TRC is a reprise I think of one of his haiku back then.
first autumn morning
the mirror I stare into
shows my father's face.
