Basho’s famous ‘the old pond’ is the  first stanza of our Tan Renga.
The goal of this Tan Renga Challenge is to write the second stanza
(7-7, but don’t count them strict) of the Tan Renga.
The first stanza is as written and we  complete the Tan Renga
with our second stanza inspired and associated on the first stanza.
