Raindrops on bamboo...

yellow bamboo ~

tan renga*

raindrops on bamboo
shimmer in the sunlight
little diamonds

in the rough, growing faster

*A Tan Renga looks similar with the tanka, but there is a difference. A tanka is written by one poet and a Tan Renga is written by two poets, it's a short chained renga of two stanzas.
