Carpe Diem’s Tan Renga Challenge #1, “wind jostles the scarecrow”

November on Carpe Diem is a Tan Renga Challenge month. Today we are given the haiku “wind jostles the scarecrow” by Jessica of Like an Apple to add two 7 syllable lines to.


wind jostles the scarecrow
near the heavy-hung cornstalks
the summer is spent

harvest festivals begin
scarecrow pondering the bin


Smiles, love and laughter
