Together

courtesan and monk,
sleeping under one roof together,
moon in a field of clover

© Basho (Tr. Chèvrefeuille)

heart-warmed by the wantonness
and intense scent of beauty

My response to Carpe Diem #1529 Together … (Tan Renga Challenge)

Together is the theme for today and the challenge is to create a Tan Renga inspired by a well-known haiku by Matsuo Basho (1644-1694) taken from his haibun ‘Oku No Hosomichi’ (The Small Road Into The Deep North).
