My response to Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge Month 2017 #8 – The flower of a pumpkin (Tomiyashu Fusei)

We are almost halfway through the Tan Renga Challenge month and our ‘hokku’ is by Tomiyasu Fusei (1885 – 1979), a contemporary of Shiki and a member of the Hototogisu Haiku Group and founder member of the Haiku Association of Tokyo University.
