Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend. I had a busy weekend (had the evening-shift) and couldn't enjoy the nice spring weather this weekend. This month we are creating Tan Renga, a small chained verse of two stanza written by two poets. Today I have a not so well known haiku for you to work with by Matsuo Basho (1644-1694).
Here is the haiku to work with:
hige kaze wo fuite boshu tanzuru wa tare ga ko zo
who is it that grieves,
the wind blowing through his beard,
for late autumn?
(C) Matsuo Basho (Tr. R.H.Blyth)
I think this haiku (or maybe more a senryu) isn't really easy to work with, so this will be a "real" challenge to make the Tan Renga complete.
