Written for:  Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge Month May 31st: a haiku by Basho
For our last episode I have a nice “hokku” by Basho. We started with him and we end with him … By the way Basho was a great renga master so this month was also a tribute to him … and you all were great.


do not doubt it,
the bay has its spring too,
the flowers of the tide                                 © Basho (1644-1694)

rippling like peony petals
open to a spring breeze                                © Sara McNulty

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
