Five Canadian geese flying North against a blue sky

Kristjaan at Carpe Diem has invited us to create a Tan Renga with the given haiku by Ken Gierke. A Tan Renga is a short chained poem written by two poets. It looks very similar to a Tanka, but a Tanka is written by one poet.

With love from Xenia xxx

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Kim, it is such a lovely sound. Most of the Canada geese are flying over and we always get a few flocks who spend the Winter here 🙂💖 xxx
