Carpe Diem #1670 Tan Renga Challenge Month May 2019 (17) sun-dried grass

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at the penultimate episode of our Tan Renga Challenge Month May 2019. This month was a real joy, but time wasn't always at my side, so I am behind with commenting on all your responses. I hope to catch up this week.

For this penultimate episode I have another beautiful haiku by our dear friend, who we still miss, Jane Reichhold (1937-2016) for you to work with and create a Tan Renga with ... a twist ... a hineri episode.

Here is the haiku ("hokku") to work with. The goal is to create a Tan Renga by adding your 2nd stanza of two lines and ... you have to add another three-lined stanza and another two-lined stanza. So at the end of this task you have created a four stanza "short" renga.
