gentle breeze on warm evening ~ tan renga


Carpe Diem #1602 Tan Renga – the night of firefly asks us to use a haiku
by Katsuro Nabuko (
in blue) to create a Tan Renga Hineri, or tan renga with a twist,
by creating a tanka and following it with a completely new tanka.
Kristjaan describes the original poem as a love-haiku.

I wear loosely
and meet the man
at the night of firefly
                   © Katsura Nobuko

gentle breeze on warm evening
brushing cheek like soft caress

amid glowing stars
as we look up to the stars
in a warm embrace
we go indoors, turn lights out
leave fireflies for other things
