At Carpe Diem Haiku Kai we have reached November 2013 in Chèvrefeuille’s trip down memory lane – as part of the two year anniversary celebration.  The prompt today is a tan renga challenge in which we were asked to add two lines (in approximately 7/7) to Becca Givens’ lovely hokku:

river stones
caressed by flowing water
pale moon shines                                            (Becca Givens)

Here are our host’s offerings:

river stones
caressed by flowing water
pale moon shines                                            (Becca Givens)

the sound of a waterfall
makes the night more silent                        (Chèvrefeuille)

and

river stones
caressed by flowing water
pale moon shines                                            (Becca Givens)

behind a thin veil of clouds
she, the one I love, smiles at me                (Chèvrefeuille)

And here is my own:

river stones
caressed by flowing water
pale moon shines                                            (Becca Givens)

on the water’s surface
here – then gone – then here                         (Jen R)

Carpe Diem 2nd Anniversary

Our host adds that “As I look back at that month I feel overwhelmed by pride and happiness, because contributors than are still contributors now … so I think we really have become a family of haiku poets.”  Yes – Carpe Diem has become an online family – and I am so happy to be a part of that family.

  1. Hmm so Hamish prompts you for a haiku and seven(!) minutes later you reply with –

    “fights forgotten –
    river stones
    rest”

    Oh come on, that was a set-up, right? And I refuse to buy it! Nope. It took you hours to capture that perfect sense of simple peacefulness, must have…

    And I really love it, btw 🙂
