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

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
