Carpe Diem #1606 Tan Renga Challenge Month 2019 (10) White Bush Clover

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new (somewhat belated) episode of our wonderful Tan Renga Challenge Month 2019. This month all the themes / prompts are haiku by modern and non-modern haikupoets. The goal this month is to create a Tan Renga with the given haiku by adding your second stanza of approximately 14 syllables associated on images and scenes in the given haiku.

Today I have a wonderful haiku by one of my favorite haiku poets, Masaoka Shiki, the haiku poet who brought haiku into the 20th century. He has written a lot of haiku and I think his haiku are wonderful.

White Bush Clover
Here is the haiku to work with:

the white bush clovers
drop the dewdrops

(c) Masaoka Shiki (1867-1902)

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until February 20th at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new episode later on. For now ... have fun!
