Miura Chora (1729 – 1780) was a Japanese poet raised in Ise, in the Mie Prefecture of Shima Province on the island of Honshu, Japan. He traveled throughout the country composing poems and helped lead the Matsuo Bashō revival movement of the eighteenth century.

Here is the "hokku" for todays Tan Renga Challenge:

  1. Nice!! I love the scent of pine...although the church incense makes me faint, so at funerals I need to sit in the back. At my mom's I breathed in my gloves.
