morning glory



Inspirational challenge from our host on CDHK: 

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

It's Friday again ... so it's Tan Renga time. This week's Tan Renga to complete is a haiku by Chiyo Ni, a wellknown haiku poetess who wrote her haiku in the way of Basho.
For this Tan Renga challenge I have chosen one of her most known haiku 'morning glory'. A real beauty.
It's your task to complete the tan renga by writing the second stanza towards it. This 2nd stanza has two lines with approximately 7 syllables each. A completed Tan Renga looks like a tanka, but is written by two poets.
asano eikou yoku baketto entanguru watashiha mizuwo motomeru

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

So here is my attempt at a response:


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

morning glory nods it head
spilling dewdrops on my face   ©  petra domina
