My response to Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge Month (Second Edition), May 2017 #1 on a gust of wind

Chèvrefeuille has welcomed us to the first episode of a new Carpe Diem Haiku Kai: a month of Tan Renga Challenges. Tan Renga is a short chained renga created by two poets.  For this first episode, he has chosen one of his own haiku and our task is to create the second (two-lined stanza, following approximately 7-7 syllables.

      1. I tried – it may have worked out.

        Quick question – how do you follow Chèvrefeuille or CDHK? It took forever (well, maybe not ‘forever’ but a few tries) to load the site and I could see no way to follow – is it me? Thank you. G:)

      2. It’s not a WordPress site, so there isn’t a ‘follow’ button. Copy the url and then go to ‘Reader’ at the top of the WordPress page and then click on ‘Manage’. You should be able to paste the url into the box ‘Enter a site to follow’ and then it should show up at the top of the list of sites you follow. Then click to confirm!
