Carpe Diem #1663 Tan Renga Challenge Month May 2019 (10) snap of an icicle

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new episode in our Tan Renga Challenge Month May 2019. This month I challenge you to create Tan Renga with a given haiku and today I have chosen a haiku by one of our long time members and gifted haiku poetess ... Kim M. Russell.

As you all know a while ago we started our Quest for a New Masterpiece and the haiku for today is a Masterpiece in my opinion. It's a haiku that can become an "evergreen".

Here is the haiku, this masterpiece, by Kim:

muffled and silenced
the snap of an icicle
engulfed by fresh snow

A wonderful haiku to start the Tan Renga with I would say, however I couldn't come up with a nice 2nd stanza. Maybe later I will publish my own Tan Renga ...

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

PS. I have published a new task on tanka at Tanka Splendor. You can find Tanka Splendor through the link at the right side of our Kai. You are invited to participate.
