morning glory!
the well bucket-entangled,
I ask for water

morning glory!
the well bucket-entangled,
I ask for water

rusty pail slips from my hands

 listen for the endless bottom

(ok I had to do something fun)

The Tan Renga takes the verse of another (in this case Chiyo-Ni) as inspiration. The poet then adds two lines (7-7) to create a link between the two poets.

Chevrefeuilles Haiku Kai (hosted by Kristjaan Panneman) has prompted another  wonderful challenge for spring.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we started working with an E. African team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. As a bio major and nurse, it is exciting to use my knowledge to encourage young minds to love science. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.
