Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge September 2018 Chained Together III (8) pear tree in bloom

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new episode of our TRC month September 2018. A few days ago I challenged you to create the first stanza (hokku) of the Tan Renga inspired on the 2nd stanza given by me. I have another Hineri TRC for you today. This time I have chosen a quote by Masaoka Shiki and reworked it to a 2nd stanza. The goal is to create the first stanza of this Tan Renga.

Here is the re-worked quote by Shiki. I have turned it into the 2nd stanza to work with:

pear tree in full bloom on a battlefield
collapsed house becomes beautiful again

Pear Tree In Bloom (woodblock print by Kono Bairei)
A nice 2nd stanza to work with I would say. Now it is up to you to create the first stanza (hokku) of this Tan Renga.

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until September 18th at noon (CEST). I will try to publish our new episode later on. Have fun!
