Starting With Jane

Written for:  Carpe Diem Universal Jane #16 Morning Breeze
As you all know this month is Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge Month 2017, so I decided to ask you to create Tan Renga starting with one of the haiku by Jane which I will give you. You may choose one or you may use them all to create Tan Renga with.

So here we go. I have selected four haiku crafted by Jane and published online in her “A Dictionary of Haiku”. (All the haiku are from the Spring part of this “dictionary” and from the section “celestial”.

without lights
the brightness of a blue sky
full of stars                                          (C) Jane Reichhold

a roof of silvery light
in which to dance under                   © Sara McNulty

balanced at dawn
a full moon slides into the sea
without ripples                                     (C) Jane Reichhold

stars bend down
into the wind of whitecaps
morning light                                          (C) Jane Reichhold

dancing like diamonds on water
ushering in a new day                            © Sara McNulty

About purplepeninportland

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.
