Tanka: Stone Steps

 

black whippet in a black harness walking on rocks and sniffing the seaweed at low tide

 

stone steps
so easy to trust
where they lead
when the moon floats by at night
to leave her blessings

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.
