May Tan Renga Day 4

silent steps –
one more candle illuminates

dancing shadows disappear
banished by the growing flames           Kim M. Russell, 2017

lighting one candle
with another candle
an evening in spring                                  © Buson (Tr. unknown)

smoke mingles with sweet perfume
of drifting cherry blossoms                     Kim M. Russell, 2017

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’.
