Author’s Note: This is my 2nd contribution to the prompt.
Chèvrefeuille has a Tan Renga Challenge for us, in which a short chained poem called a tan renga is written by two poets. The first poet provides the ‘hokku’ (starting verse), while the other poet adds a second stanza of two lines, making it look similar to a tanka.
He has chosen three haiku from which we can create our tan renga; we may use one, two or all three.
