Reinvigorated: a tan renga 


On this dreary Saturday morning I opened up my email, a day late, to find the weekly Tan Renga Challenge (henceforth referred to as the TRC) from CDHK. Chèvrefeuille, our host, offered several thoughts/interpretations on the haiku that we will use this week to compose our tan renga; you can see all his thoughts and the challenge here. I went with the thought of an older woman as the inspiration for my piece.

cherry tree blooms in old age
an event to remember
