Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #89


The goal of the Tan Renga Challenge is to complete the Tan Renga by writing the second (two lined, 7-7) stanza through associating on the images in the first (three lined) stanza or ‘hokku’.

Here is the ‘hokku’ by Mabson O. Southard
From deep in the spring
clear reflections rise to meet
 falling plum petals

Here’s inspiring & sweet response from our  Chèvrefeuille
From deep in the spring
clear reflections rise to meet
falling plum petals                   (Southard)swiftly, swiftly, following Newton
plums falling one by one          (Chèvrefeuille)

My response to this wonderful Hokku-

From deep in the spring
clear reflections rise to meet
 falling plum petals  (Southard)

wafting sweet-scented beads
handpicked unruffled memories (Ruchi Chopra)

Another one-

clumps of fragrant beads like
 sand melting away tirelessly (Ruchi Chopra)
