Spring Songs

Written for:  Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge Month 2017 #14 Springtime (Kikaku)

Here is our new “hokku” to work with and create a Tan Renga. This “hokku” is by one of Basho’s students, Kikaku.

Springtime in Edo,
Not a day passes without
A temple bell sold.                              © Kikaku

or birds trilling like clear bells
in springtime harmonies                   © 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.
