journey of inspiration ~ tan renga


Carpe Diem #1665 Tan Renga – “Miscanthus bud”
asks us to use a haiku by Matsuo Bashō (in blue)
to be used to create a tanka.

another year is gone
a traveler’s shade on my head,
straw sandals at my feet

              Bashō

journey of inspiration
in lessons learned from strangers
