the white bush clovers
drop the dewdrops

shaken gently by the wind

My response to Carpe Diem #1606 Tan Renga Challenge Month 2019 (10) White Bush Clover

Throughout February, the goal is to create a Tan Renga with the given haiku by adding a second stanza of approximately 14 syllables. Today we have a haiku by Masaoka Shiki.
