through the darkest hour

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #79, Ese's "through the darkest hour"


The goal of this Tan Renga challenge is to continue or complete a Tan Renga, a two chained haiku poem, which is started by one of our classical haiku-poets or a non-classical haiku poet as is today.

Ese wrote this haiku in response on "Starry Night" a painting by Van Gogh which we had for prompt in February 2015.

And now it's the goal to complete this Tan Renga with a two-lined stanza of 7-7 syllables, however there is no need to use that strict syllables count.

every tree top in the forest
adorned with a star                 (Ese)

new years celebrations
lightshow against the dark sky           (Chèvrefeuille)

Okay it is my turn to see if I enhance the beauty of Ese's haiku or fall miserably short.

through the darkest hour
every tree top in the forest
adorned with a star                 (Ese)

with a twinkle in its eyes
the owl glides on silent wings     (Janice)
