Written for: Carpe Diem #1615 Tan Renga Challenge Month 2019 (20) Buddha Clouds
“The haiku to work with I have extracted from her “A Dictionary Of Haiku, Section Spring subsection Celestial.
As you all know Jane was once a co-host of our wonderful Kai and I have only warm memories of her. She was an awesome sensei, haiku and tanka poet, an awesome co-host and a close friend. I still miss her, but I believe that her spirit is dwelling here at CDHK. So this last regular episode is a tribute to her.”
Here is the haiku to work with:
