Carpe Diem Tan Renga Wednesday #5: White Crane

how I wish to call
a white crane from Fukei,
but for this cold rain.
the crane wisely remains home
safely out of the downpour

Kikaku & Cie

The Hokku stanza of this Renga was composed by Takarai Kikaku (1661 - 1707) who was an accomplished disciple of Matsuo Basho. The Ageku stanza was composed by me on behalf of the crane who said: "I ain't goin' out in that downpour, Beeyotch!" Or something like that.
