Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #91 Renga With .... (hineri) Sonora Desert

!! open for your submissions next Sunday June 30th at 7:00 PM (CEST !!

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new weekend meditation here at our wonderful Haiku Kai. I have a nice challenge for you all I think this weekend. I have chosen for a Renga With ... episode, one with a twist this time. I will give you six haiku, but from those six I have chosen two which are already in place. I will try to explain the goal this time, in this Hineri Renga, two of the given haiku have a place in the renga you just have to add your two lined stanza of approx. 7-7 syllables. This time those haiku are the first and the third haiku of the six. Those two haiku cannot appear on an other place in your renga.

Here are the haiku to work with and create your Renga with ... Jane Reichhold:

1. among dune grass
silver bleached logs
and a perfect day

2. overcoming rocks
a stream of cacti
slowly spreading

3. desert ways
branching all over
cholla cactus

Teddy Bear Cholla (Sonora Desert)

4. alone and asking
to be touched
teddy bear cholla

5. writing
desert poems
pencil cholla

6. desert sunset
cholla cactus sticks
to the light

So the task is to create a Renga With Jane Reichhold, but the 1st and 3rd haiku have to stay on their place. Add your two lined stanza and take the opportunity to creat a renga with one of the greatest and renown modern haiku poets ... Jane Reichhold.

This weekend meditation is open for your submissions next Sunday June 30th at 7:00 PM (CEST) and will remain open until July 7th at noon (CEST). I will try to publish our new episode, the first of July, later on. Have a wonderful weekend.

  1. I am prone to being unable to follow instructions, and I did this wrong. I wrote six Troiku poems.
