Morning Shimmer

Dear friends and followers,

Here I am again. I love to share a Tan Renga Challenge as I have started at my weblog At that weblog we have this month a Tan Renga Challenge Month, so every prompt (very day) is a haiku written by one of the contributors to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. That haiku is the first stanza (5-7-5 syllables) of a Tan Renga. A Tan Renga is a short chained poem and is written by two poets. It looks very similar with the Tanka, the only difference is that Tan Renga is written by two poets and the Tanka by one poet.
In this Tan Renga Challenge the goal is to write the second stanza (7-7) of the Tan Renga by associating on the image or the words painted in the haiku. Today’s Tan Renga is started by Bjorn Rudberg and here is his haiku, the first stanza of the Tan Renga:

morning shimmer
dew frosting on furze
a single leaf falls                                                   (Bjorn Rudberg)

finally the last flower buds open
the cherry tree in full bloom                           (Chèvrefeuille)

Or another one:

morning shimmer
dew frosting on furze
a single leaf falls                                                  (Bjorn Rudberg)

on the schoolyard kids playing
with colorful leaves and chestnuts              (Chèvrefeuille)

Well … I hope you liked these Tan Renga … it was a joy to create them. See you another time …. Namaste

  1. I love both of these, but the one about the cherry tree is especially wonderful. I love the idea of the tree waiting for that last bloom to open before its majesty is complete. Inspiring!
