renga with basho

Carpe Diem Haiku Kai’s ”Renga Challenge” create a renga with haiku by Basho.


 

rainy season

sea glow lights held up

by the night watchman

pale koi bubble to surface

paddle junk into harbor

 

the blue sea

in waves smelling of saké

tonight’s full moon

sitting with friend on the beach

quietly sip from warm cup

 

on a bare branch

a crow settled down

autumn evening

vermillion koyo fallen

colors faded with sunset

    A nice Renga Lynn. I like how you brought together scenes on or by the water.
