so many temples
all breaths become one
the steps flow
By: Cathy Tenzo of Haiku Plate Special
cherry blossoms blooming bright
prayers rise with sweet incense
a pilgrim’s journey
shrines and temples in spring
seeking new wisdom
to find illumination
on the wind – transformation
Carpe Diem Haiku Kai has presented us with a new Tan Renga…Squared!
Not an easy task…it consists of adding two-lines (7-7syllables) to the guest poet’s haiku, then writing a tanka to round the whole thing off. Why not go and have a look, and perhaps take up the challenge!
