“winds howl in rage”

Written for:  Carpe Diem – Tan Renga Challenge, September 2018
Chained Together III (2) winds howl in rage

Today’s episode is a haiku by Natsume Soseki (1867-1916), your task is to complete the Tan Renga by adding your two-lined stanza (approximately 7-7 syllables).

Here is the haiku to work with and create a Tan Renga with:

over the wintry forest
winds howl in rage
with no leaves to blow

©️ Natsume Soseki

And here is my continuation of this nice haiku by Soseki:

body poppers dance on the square
while the first flakes of snow fall

©️ Chèvrefeuille (our host)

Here is my attempt:

over the wintry forest
winds howl in rage
with no leaves to blow                             ©️ Natsume Soseki

soon change to springtime breezes
leaves flutter like Chinese fans               © Sara McNulty
