Carpe Diem”s Tan Renga Challenge Month #VI, Steph’s ”The Eucalyptus”

This Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge is Steph’s ”The Eucalyptus”. The goal being to add 2 x 7 syllable lines to Steph’s haiku to form a renga.

For those of you who have not heard a Koala in full song…

the eucalyptus
captures the iridescence
in the morning fog

koala, calling a mate
breaks his slumber on lumber

Smiles, love and laughter

  4. You’re from ‘down-under’ and this was a not so big challenge for you I think … nice completion full of humor JRB. Thank you for enlightening me with the song of the koala.
