deep silence – tan renga

 

deep silence
the shrill of cicadas
seeps into rocks
                          © Matsuo Bashō

gathering sun-warmed granite
comfort lasts long into night

~~~~~~

under falling snow
oak clings to autumn’s last trace
cardinal takes flight

soft winter breeze cherishes
the last colorful leaves
                          © Chèvrefeuille
