A New Year Begins – tan renga

A New Year Brgins

A new year begins
With the blooming
Of a single frosty rose
                         (Mizuhara Shuoshi)

swallow’s song greets the new dawn
memory of snow soon fades

This is my response to Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge Month May 29th, write two lines to follow a given hokku, essentially creating a tanka.  The original haiku is by Japanese poet Mizuhara Shuoshi (1892-1981).
