the old oak’s roots –
reach from past to future
recall last year ( (c) Björn Rudberg)
here our path looks trampled
though seeds still lie about (Blake)
This poem is part of Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #67, Björn Rudberg’s “the old oak’s roots”, another great prompt hosted by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. In this challenge a lovely haiku by Björn Rudberg of Brudberg’s Writings was our inspiration and we were asked to take his hokku and add two lines in approximately 7/7 syllables, to create a two-person tanka, a tan renga. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here.
