Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #111 Autumn Heat

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Last week I re-started our weekly Tan Renga Challenge (TRC) on Wednesdays, but this week's TRC I couldn't make on time through lack of time, but here it is a new TRC for you:

This week I have a nice haiku written by Taneda Santoka (1882-1940) to work with. Santoka Taneda was a haiku poet who choose to free-style with haiku. What does that mean? He didn't follow the classical onji (5-7-5) or for example didn't use kigo (seasonwords). A style of haiku-ing I love too.

Begging Bowl
The goal of this TRC is to create the second stanza (of two-lines with approximately 14 words) through association on images and scenes in the given haiku. Here is the "hokku" to work with:

autumn heat --
my begging bowl
is full of rice

(C) Santoka Taneda (Tr. John Stevens)

This episode of our TRC is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until August 30th 10:00 PM (CEST). Have fun!
