Full Snow Moon

As you all know Hineri means with a twist, so today’s challenge at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is to create not only the 2nd (two-lined) stanza, but also the 3rd (three-lined) stanza and 4th (two-lined) stanza through association. For today’s Hineri Tan Renga Challenge I have chosen a haiku by one of our longtime members of our haiku family, Hamish Managua Gunn.

frost dripping in moonlight

she awakens, missing her mate.

 

Watching the cold sun

rise above the mountain tops

she wishes for Spring

when there were happy times

before loneliness came.
