a one-way ticket
becoming free again
broken sunflower
heartsick for the scents of home
ripened fruit and failing leaves

Sunflowers by Vincent van Gogh

My response to Carpe Diem #1514 Exile (Tan Renga Challenge)

In today’s episode, we have E for Exile and the challenge is to create a tan renga from one of the two given haiku written by Chèvrefeuille:

gone in exile
without the one who kissed me all over –
broken sunflower

gone in exile
to become free again
the people of God

© Chèvrefeuille

Alternatively, we can create a ‘fusion’ haiku from both. Mine has turned into a fusion tan renga.
