Night of Firefly

Today at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, the Tan Renga Challenge is a Hineri (with a twist) challenge and that means you have to create a Tan Renga and two other stanza, so you have to create not only the second stanza of two lines, but also a third stanza (three lines) and a fourth stanza (two lines).


I wear loosely

and meet the man

at the night of firefly

alone I have loved him

forever without knowing him

 

fireflies romancing in

the moon’s sultry breeze

silk charmeuse ripples

 

teasing my skin I wait

for him. I will wait for him.
