Carpe Diem #1656 Tan Renga Challenge May 2019 (3) Dandelion and Butterfly

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

What a joy to create this month full of TRC's created from modern and classical haiku. Today I have a nice classical, not so renown, haiku by one of the most famous female haiku poets, Chiyo-Ni.
As I discovered haiku back in the late eighties I only read haiku created by male poets, but at the start of this century I discovered that there were also female haiku poets. Chiyo-Ni was one of the first haiku poetesses I discovered I was immediately in love with the beauty of her haiku especially that gorgeous one themed "morning glories", that renown one.

I think I have read the most of her haiku, but the haiku to work with today I wasn't familiar with so I am looking forward to your responses on this haiku.

Butterfly on Dandelion

Here is the first stanza of today's TRC, a haiku by Chiyo-Ni:

a dandelion
now and then interrupting
the butterflys dream

Well ... it's now up to you to create a Tan Renga with this one. Have fun!

This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7:00 PM (CEST) and will remain open until May 9th at noon (CEST). I will try to publish our new weekend meditation later on.
