Tan Renga Challenge Buson’s “In the stillness”

Carpe Diem’s Tan Renga Challenge #6, is Buson’s “In the stillness”

The Challenge is to complete the Tan Renga. A Tan Renga has two stanza and is written by two haiku poets. The first gives the first stanza (5-7-5) and the second reacts on the haiku by writing a two line stanza (7-7).
