In the Fields

ancient warriors ghosts
mists over the foreign highlands –
waiting for the full moon                         © Chèvrefeuille
graveyards become battlefields
watered by the tears of stars

with ripe rice plants for the Gods

slowly waxing sickle moon

it must have bloomed

its seeds are icy snowflakes
silvered by the waning moon

My response to Carpe Diem #1337 Tan Renga Challenge “in the fields”

Today we have a Tan Renga Challenge, in which a short chained poem called a tan renga is written by two poets. The first poet provides the ‘hokku’ (starting verse), while the other poet adds a second stanza of two lines, making it look similar to a tanka.

Chèvrefeuille has chosen three haiku from which we can create our tan renga; we may use one, two or all three.
