Buddha clouds

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:

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.

    For the photo I think you’re still young and I admire your spiritual thinking to pay that homage. Your haiku is beautiful. Greetings from Caracas.
