on a clover path

in the gentle hum of bees

village sounds are near (my hokku)

the temple bell stops but I still hear

the sound coming out of the flowers

(final two lines from Basho—see below)

For this Carpe Diem Tan Renga challenge Chevrefeuille offers a twist. Instead of asking for a response to a featured haiku, he has provided the final two lines for which we are to write a haiku (hokku) to precede it. Basho’s words are taken from his haibun ‘Narrow Road into the Deep North’.
