Carpe Diem Tan Renga


On carpe diem haiku kai, the challenge for today is to complete a tan renga.  This is a collaborative creation of two people, the first supplying a traditional haiku, and the second completing it with two lines of 7 syllables each.  Our host, Chèvrefeuille, wrote the first three lines, and I offer the final two:

sweet perfume

mingles with the sound of rain–

a dog barks

senses blend–harsh and lovely

early morning languid doze
