Tan Renga Challenge

  Tan Renga, Basho's famous 'the old pond'.
   Link to Carpe-Diem

Original art painting by Cathy Peek

                               the old pond
                     a frog jumps in -
                     the sound of water

                     dragonflies flit up and about
                     snatching gnats from the air

  5. Good day Andrea welcome at Carpe Diem, the place to be if you're writing haiku and love to share them. I am your host at Carpe Diem.
    What a wonderful completion of the Tan Renga, a nice second stanza with in the lead the Dragonfly. Really this 2nd stanza completes the story.

  6. Dragonflies make the picture complete

  7. What an interesting piece of art. I rather like the little frogs and the dragonflies. And, I love the little poem. You're a very talented lady my friend. Now I need to finish off the laundry so that I can hop in for my nap. Tonight it's back to work. You have a wonderful day. Hugs, Edna B.
