autumn evening

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1541 – Evening (modern kigo)
Back to our Autumn month “the leaves are falling” … Today I have chosen two nice haiku by Jane Reichhold taken from her “A Dictionary of Haiku” section Autumn, subsection Celestial. The challenge today is to create a short renga with the given haiku, both themed “evening”, with a maximum of eight stanza and at least four stanza.

Here are the two haiku by Jane to work with:

evening comes
wrapped in sea fog
tied with webs                                              © Jane Reichhold

tall reeds lean, stems and feathers
against a moonlit red sky                          © Sara McNulty


evening sea fog
descending into sun-dried grass
sweaty lovers                                                © Jane Reichhold

cool off in rising fog
grass ghostly white with imprints            © Sara McNulty
