most rewarding pilgrimage
home of ancestors
haunted valley deep in the mountains
the dim glow of a campfire
There’s a twist in Carpe Diem’s Tan Renga Challenge September 2018 Chained Together III (11) the dim glow of a campfire. Kristjaan has distilled a line from Akutagawa Ryūnosuke’s Hell Screen into a two line closing verse (ageku), and we are asked to create the hokku to precede it. My hokku (haiku) appears in blue.
