Carpe Diem’s Renga Challenge #2 logged tree

the blue sea
in waves smelling of saké
tonight’s full moon

together at the cliffs edge
our first kiss

early summer rain
the green of a rock cypress
lasting how long

loves first blush
begins to fade

on a bare branch
a crow settled down
autumn evening

the sound of your voice
echoes hollowly

logged tree
see the larger cut end is
a harvest moon

joys of the season
wither too soon
