“autumn heat”

Written for:  Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #111 Autumn Heat
“This week I have a nice haiku written by Taneda Santoka (1882-1940) to work with. Santoka Taneda was a haiku poet who choose to free-style with haiku. What does that mean? He didn’t follow the classical onji (5-7-5) or for example didn’t use kigo (seasonwords). A style of haiku-ing I love too.”

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.

  1. Yay! for the image of a good summer-autumn harvest. I like the style twist.
