Heeding Haiku~Tan Renga

Rice Field

Winter rice fields–
railroad tracks running
a level above them

the breeze moves the rice grass

dragonfly is set aloft

“This week I would like to introduce the short chained renga, Tan Renga. A Tan Renga looks similar with tanka (5-7-5-7-7), but is slightly different. A tanka is written by one poet, but a Tan Renga is written by two poets. A Tan Renga has two stanza respectively a three (3) lined stanza ‘hokku’ and a two (2) lined stanza ‘ageku’.
The goal is to create the second stanza (approx. 7-7 syllables) through associating on the first stanza.”~Chevrefeuille

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
