A Rolling Stone Gathers No Moss

Sculpted by seasons
Tumbled by a watercourse
On a river bank
M
O
S
Spores drift in a cloud
Nuclear showers of green rain
Exploding on the breeze

My response to Carpe Diem’s Brainteaser #1 Introduction and first challenge

We have a new feature, a tricky one, in which we will explore other ‘special’ haiku forms, such as the one in today’s challenge, the ‘acrostic haiku’:

Sweet memories
Under the old apple tree
Newly weds

To make it a little bit more challenging, Chèvrefeuille would like us to include an acrostichon and a liaison. In the following example, the acrostichon is AUTUMN and the liaison is TUTU:

A rainy day
Under the umbrella
Tears of joy
U
T
United again
Music of the Swanlake
Newly wed
