Tan Renga Challenge 

This week’s Tan Renga Challenge starts with a haiku written by Yu Chang, a modern American haiku poet. Yu Chang was born in mainland China; grew up in Taiwan; and went to graduate schools in England and in the US. Since 1974 he has been a faculty member in the electrical engineering department at Union College in Schenectady, NY.

The goal of the Tan Renga Challenge is to compose the second (two-lined) stanza to make the Tan Renga complete. This is my attempt:

warm rain
the spring moon returns
to the rusty can

the children run pushing by
winner douses the losers
