Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Here is our delayed post as mentioned yesterday. Today I love to challenge you to create a Tan Renga Hineri. That means: I will give you a haiku to work with. You have to add a minimum of three stanza and a maximum of five stanza. You have to create the 2nd stanza, the 3rd stanza (a haiku) and a 4th stanza (two lined). If you are inspired enough than you can add also a fifth stanza (a haiku) and a 6th stanza (two lined). Try to create a "short story" and try to "close the chain" with a "ageku" (closing verse) that refers to the 1st (given) stanza.

Today I have a beautiful haiku by Jane Reichhold (1937-2016) to work with. Try to create your Tan Renga Hineri in honor of her.

I think this haiku is a beauty to work with. It has so many scenes hidden in it ...
