The Tan Renga Challenge for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai on September 26th, featured my Haiku, “Red Leaf Falls”. I have shared with you the results from the Carpe Diem Community of Poets (here). By adding the 7-7 lines to my own Haiku – I could not add it to the Tan Renga Challenge (it takes 2 poets); my addition of 7-7, turns the piece into a Tanka.
My completion turns it from
Haiku to Tanka
Carpet of silent snow
Red leaf falls
Lone wolf howls – waits for echo
No one hears the redwood plunge
