Written for:  Carpe Diem Tan Renga Squared #2, Björn Rudberg’s “Loon is calling”

It is my pleasure to bring you a new episode of our Tan Renga Challenge with a twist …Tan Renga Squared. The goal of Carpe Diem Tan Renga Squared is to write a second stanza to a given haiku (as we do in our Tan Renga Challenge) and a new 3-line stanza and 2-line stanza. So the goal is to write a short linked verse of four (4) stanzas.

evening mist

memories are fading

loon is calling                                             (Björn)

echos from far side of lake
a trick of many voices

sky is a gray veil
suddenly sparkling stars wink
corner unravels

mourn of the loon is distant
evaporation of mist                                    (Sara)
