Kristjaan at Carpe Diem has invited us to create a Tan Renga with the given haiku by Jane Reichhold (1937-2016). 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.

I created the second stanza as if Jane is speaking from the other side.


We wish you all a blessed Monday and a magical new week.

With love from Xenia xxx
