Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
First this: I have a new job. Next month I will start as an oncology nurse on the hematology unit of an University Medical Center at Amsterdam. It's a new challenge for me and the perspectives are wonderful for the future. So ... you all will understand that I am happy.
Back to our Autumn month "the leaves are falling" ... Today I have chosen two nice haiku by Jane Reichhold taken from her "A Dictionary of Haiku" section Autumn, subsection Celestial. The challenge today is to create a short renga with the given haiku, both themed "evening", with a maximum of eight stanza and at least four stanza.
Here are the two haiku by Jane to work with:
wrapped in sea fog
tied with webs
evening sea fog
descending into sun-dried grass

Two beauties I dare to say. I still miss Jane, as many of you will do too, but through my choices of themes and haiku I hope to honor her as long as CDHK will be alive and kicking.
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until November 15th at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new weekend meditation later on. For now ... have fun!
