On the Beach

Sunday morning
all the waves in white
kneeling on the beach                            Jane Reichhold

gulls preach to the converted             Kim M. Russell, 5th May 2019

My response to Carpe Diem #1657 Tan Renga Challenge May 2019 (4) Ocean Sanctuary

Today we are creating a Tan Renga with a haiku by Jane Reichhold, who died in 2016.  She was one of the most famous modern haiku poets and a co-host here at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. This haiku was taken from Ocean Sanctuary, an anthology of haiku inspired by the North Coast of California, which was never published.

  1. A nice continuation of this Tan Renga Kim. It made me a little bit sad, because of the cliffs you have used in your stanza. Jane decided to end her life on her own choice. She jumped from a cliff.
