Red Leaf Falls – Tan Renga Poets

 

At Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, my Haiku  “Red Leaf Falls”  was chosen for the Tan Renga Challenge for September 26th.   A Tan Renga is written by two (2) poets; first poet creating the 5-7-5, and the second poet completing the Tan Renga by adding the last part of 7-7.

Nature sleeps
Carpet of silent snow
Red leaf falls

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

______________________________________

Red Leaf Falls (Host)
from Chèvrefeuille

nature sleeps
carpet of silent snow
red leaf falls
in the middle of the night
bad dreams torturing me

Red Leaf Falls (2)
from Ese of Ese’s Voice

nature sleeps
carpet of silent snow
red leaf falls
lone silhouette disappears
between bare trees only footprints

Red Leaf Falls (3)
from Opie Houston

nature sleeps
carpet of silent snow
red leaf falls
autumn’s finale bouquet
on winter’s white stage

Nature Sleeps (4)
from Lolly of Look for a Lovely Thing

nature sleeps
carpet of silent snow
red leaf falls
into a brook slowly
running out of babble

Posing (5)
from Tournesol ~ dans un jardin

nature sleeps
carpet of silent snow
red leaf falls
chasing shadows in the park
squirrel stops to pose

Nature Sleeps (6)
from Jen at Blog It or Lose It

nature sleeps
carpet of silent snow
red leaf falls
chasing shadows in the park
squirrel stops to pose

Red Leaf Falls (7)
from jazzytower of thoughts and entanglements

nature sleeps
carpet of silent snow
red leaf falls
family of deers prances
babe sniffs red leaf – tussled snow

Red Leaf Falls (8)
from Georgia of Bastet’s Waka Library

nature sleeps
carpet of silent snow
red leaf falls
eve in the dead of winter
– a splash of color

Red Leaf Falls (9)
from mari t of  Overcoming Static

nature sleeps
carpet of silent snow
red leaf falls
children in from the cold
cider not ready

 

My response: turning this Haiku into 5-7-5-7-7 is here
