silent steps –
one more candle illuminates

with another candle

My response to Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge 2017 #5 silent steps
Chèvrefeuille has reminded us that this month we are busy with our second CDHK Tan Renga Challenge and today he has chosen a modern haiku by Ese Klava, with which she became the ‘runner-up’ of the ‘prayers’ kukai.
He has also shared a haiku by Buson, from which he suggests we could also try to create a Tan Renga.
The goal of the Tan Renga Challenge is to add our two-line 2nd stanza to the ‘hokku’.
