Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #83 Renga With ... sun's reflection

!! Open for your submissions May 5th at 7:00 PM (CEST) !!

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new weekend meditation, that special feature for the weekends. A way of meditating and contemplating about a given theme or to reflect on your thoughts about haiku to work with. This weekend I have chosen to challenge you with a Renga With ... episode. This Renga With ... episode I love to challenge you to create a Renga with six haiku crafted by myself.

Here are the haiku to work with. I am looking forward to the renga toare going to create.

in love with his reflection
vainglorious guy

snowdrops blooming
waving goodbye to Winter
nearly Spring

icicles hanging
at the gutter of the old mansion
sun's reflections

this cold winter night
laying naked under my quilt
feels like summer

messenger of heaven
circling high above my head -
re-thinking my life

light of ember
mysterious shadows on the wall -
a cool summer night

You all know what to do but I will give you the task again. You have to add the two-lined stanza between the haiku. You may choose your own "line-up". Try to make it a closed chain by creating the "closing verse" or "ageku" associated on the "hokku" or "starting verse". Have a great weekend.

This weekend meditation is open for your submissions next Sunday May 5th at 7:00 PM (CEST) and will remain open until May 12th at noon (CEST).
