Written for:  Carpe Diem #1760 Butterfly (a Tan Renga challenge)

“Today I love to challenge you to create a Tan Renga with a given haiku. As you all know the goal of a so called “Tan Renga Challenge” is to add your 2nd stanza of two lines (approximately 7-7 syllables) to complete or continue the given haiku through association on the scenes and images in the haiku.”

Here is the haiku to work with:

on the Honeysuckle
the fragile wings of a butterfly
a fluttering sound                                  © Chèvrefeuille (October 2012) (our host)

stirs the air and spreads the scent
a perfume that fills the night                ©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.
