Last Apple of Autumn

one apple, alone
in the abandoned orchard
reddens for winter                                    Patrick Blanche (Tr. Michael R. Burch)

My response to Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge Chained Together III: An Apple, Alone

Today our challenge is to create a Tan Renga with a haiku written by the French haiku-poet Patrick Blanche. Here’s the French version:

Une pomme, seul
dans le verger abandonné
rougissent pour l’hiver
