Raindrops: a tanka/tan renga

This tanka is the completion of this week’s Tan Renga Challenge from CDHK. The haiku is provided, penned by Allen Ginsberg, and the last two lines to make the tanka are mine. 

on the porch
in my shorts;
auto lights in the rain

Raindrops 

Inspired by the prompt raindrops on Carpe Diem Haiku, I share this haiga (photo & haiku). The photo is mine, taken from inside my truck, looking out the windshield, as an autumn storm began to blow in. 



Dripping, spattering 
Raindrops driven by the wind 
And a single leaf
