ripples in the breeze
scent of harvest

In a new episode of this month’s theme, we are exploring the beauty of haiku with a challenge to create a haiku with the ‘baransu’ (balance) technique.
Chèvrefeuille compared this technique to creating a tan renga, in which we try to create the second stanza by association with the scenes in the first stanza. With the ‘baransu’ technique, we are doing the same thing, but by association with the separated lines of the haiku, to bring balance to our haiku.
