Kristjaan at Carpe Diem has invited us to create a Tan Renga with the given haiku he wrote under his pen name Chèvrefeuille. A Tan Renga is a short chained poem written by two poets. It looks very similar to a Tanka, but a Tanka is written by one poet.

You can see yesterday’s Tan Renga with a given haiku by Jane Reichhold here.
