River of Stones – Poets TRM

Tan Renga Challenge Month (TRM)
at Carpe Diem

My Haiku “River of Stones” was chosen for the challenge on November 4th.

caressed by flowing water
pale moon shines

I enjoyed reading each variation … I hope you enjoy the poet’s creative completions of turning my Haiku into a Tan Renga:

River Stones (Host)
from Chèvrefeuille

river stones
caressed by flowing water
pale moon shines
the sound of a waterfall
makes the night more silent

even the sands remember
how they were once newborn stars

caressed by flowing water
pale moon shines
trickling counter melody
to a moonlit serenade

Love is for Sharing (3)
from Kaykaula

river stones
caressed by flowing water
pale moon shines
to share a night together
with feelings of fulfillment

river stones
caressed by flowing water
pale moon shines
as others are made happy
sharing some little comforts

river stones
caressed by flowing water
pale moon shines
and guarded in their approach
mindful love is elusive

river stones
caressed by flowing water

stars glitter on the river
until the morning rises

bare feet turned backward douens dance
under the silk cotton tree

obliterating the sun
casting a glow on my day

amorous moon rays kiss on

the sound of an owl’s hunger

caressed by flowing water

deep in the loblolly pine
a great-horned owl roosts

a small cloud of fireflies
in a thicket of cattails

soft lips upon my shoulder

dancing among the rocks

reflections of my life

soft sounds of a gurgling stream
melts muscular strains away

gentle fingers enthrall her
poacher bags another trout

pale moon shines
white blooms wish to multiply
night air is filled with fragrance

Kingfisher (18)

scales reflect and dazzle
kingfisher confused gives up

River Stones (19)
from Panchali

river stones
caressed by flowing water
pale moon shines
time drape stones in new colors
builders pick them one by one

River Stones (20)
from like an apple

river stones
caressed by flowing water
pale moon shines
the stones half out of the water
slick with water and moonlight
