25 April 2014 — challenge #haiku #tanRenga #tanka.

Haiku Plate Special

Today Carpe Diem Haiku Kai challenges us to write a tan renga with a twist–add not only a two-line stanza, but add 2 more stanzas after that (basically like a tanka added on). Kristjaan calls this a tan renga squaredFollow the link for the full description. He is using a haiku today that I wrote, so I’ll end up writing the whole poem today. The beginning haiku is:

so many temples
all breaths become one
the steps flow

The poem follows:

so many temples
all breaths become one
the steps flow

walking together
as we find direction

so many pilgrims
so many stories
along the path

our lives flow together
as we inhale and exhale

  1. Hey mate! Really enjoyed your personal page and your Carpe Diem blog. I learned a little about Haiku and tried my hand at it in my last post on my blog. I’d be interested to know what you think! Thanks jameskolt.wordpress.com
