Written for:  Carpe Diem #1654 Tan Renga (1) Smoldering Fireplace
“For this first Tan Renga Challenge of May 2019 I have chosen a haiku that I recently created. It’s up to you to create the second stanza (approx. 7-7 syllables) through associating on the scene(s) in the given haiku.”

Here is the haiku to work with:

smoldering fireplace
the sweet perfume of burned herbs
loneliness grabs my throat                            © Chèvrefeuille (our host)

her spicy stew filled with herbs
clinking glasses together                                © Sara McNulty

About purplepeninportland

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.
