by the shallow pond
reflection drawing northern fowl
a warm sun shimmers

Inspired by Kristjaan,here are my two completions:-)

bent shoulders,dimming eye sight
signals a sad homecoming

who is that in the mirror
just the smile resembles me

Carpe Diem-Tan renga

Carpe Diem’s Tan Renga Challenge #20, Joanne’s “Autumn Leaves”

 

At Carpe Diem, this week’s Tan Renga Challenge is started with a haiku by Joanne of 4Joy. She wrote it in response on Garry Gay’s 4th Special and it’s a stunning haiku. The goal is to write the second stanza (7-7) to this Tan Renga started by Joanne. 

Stanza 1 (5-7-5):

autumn leaves
myriad shades red and gold
begin to fall as snow                                   (Joanne)
 
Stanza 2 (7-7):
 

saddles her winter horses
snow flakes ,frost and hail follow                  (Atreyee)
