remembering (Tan Renga – Troiku – Naani)

the shrill of cicadas
seeps into rocks © Matsuo Bashō (1644-1694)

For the first Tan Renga our host has given us the first stanza by Basho (the hokku) and the second Tan Renga, our host gives the second stanza of two lines so we can create the first stanza (hokku).  See more at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai for instructions as well as visiting other participants’ contributions.

This last exercise awakened my longing for her…








(troiku) a new form of haiku created by Chèvrefeuille at CDHK

when you were here

scent of Givenchy
caressing me

tumbling down the stairs
you kissed the boo-boo

when you were here
I was always
your little girl



how I miss your laugh
your soothing voice
telling me not to worry ~ just pray
three Hail Mary’s before I sleep
