Tan Renga – Where Have You Been So Far?

Hey, I’ve never known creating Tan Renga was such fun. You learn as you live, quite clearly. My friend, Chevrefeuille, regularly posts challenges and prompts at his awesome blog site, and today, I finally paid attention to this new thing for me. If you need explanation and guidance, you’d better visit his post. And here are my two contributions:

Tan Renga Challenge #1337 – “in the fields”

white poppy
it must have bloomed
from a wintry shower

in a hurry before springtime
has donned it with scarlet.

ancient warriors ghosts
mists over the foreign highlands –
waiting for the full moon

the field will find its
forgotten army of tall grass.

  1. I love this form which is new to me…a collaboration…a conversation. What a perfect way to bring in the New Year.

  2. A set of two wonderfully crafted continuations of the given Tan Renga. But that second continuation is really wonderful and brought that nice haiku of Basho in mind (summer grasses).
