Carpe Diem #1273 Into The Sea – Tan Renga

Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is challenging us to create a Tan Renga from a given haiku by a classical or non-classical haiku poet/ess.

It is a haiku by Jane Reichhold

What is a Tan Renga?

It is a short chained poem written by two poets. It looks very similar with Tanka, but Tanka is written by one poet.

You have to write the second stanza through associating on scenes in the haiku (the starting verse).

As you see in the title of this episode, into the sea, is the “title” of the haiku by Jane Reichhold to work with to create a Tan Renga.

the full moon
leaves a candle bright

And this is the second stanza Chevrefeuille created back in 2013 to make this a Tan Renga:

soft winter breeze cherishes
the last colorful leaves

Here is my Tan Renga with the given haiku by Jane Reichhold to honor her.

sounds of gentle waves rest me
leaving my soul peace within
