Tan Renga Challenge

Carpe Diem #1612 Tan Renga Challenge Month 2019 (16) plumegrass

 

While you decline to cry,
high on the mountainside
a single stalk of plume grass wilts.  © Ō no Yasumaro (circa 711), (Tr. Michael R. Burch)

beaten down by sun and wind
my heart echoes barren hill

broken by the storm
the asters’ fragrance rises

gathering debris
I find a robin egg intact

bird-egg-home

the asters’ fragrance rises

my heart drawing strength
to weather its own onslaught

lingering a moment
then whisked away by another

Between Dusty Cars

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge September 2018 Chained Together (III) (9) between dusty cars

between dusty cars
an orange butterfly flits
the traffic rumbles                        Kim M. Russell, 26th August 2018

a plastic bag swirls
caught in the wind
