Full Snow Moon

full snow moon
stirs the ladybug
on cold bare branches

Hamish 2016

a glint of red on silver
new blood in an old landscape

little hints of green
dotted on skeleton twigs
life in suspension

awakened by warm sunshine
ladybug flies away home

My response to Carpe Diem #1611 Tan Renga Challenge Month 2019 (15) Full Snow Moon

Today we have a Tan Renga Challenge Hineri (with a twist), in which we create not only the 2nd (two-lined) stanza, but also the 3rd (three-lined) stanza and 4th (two-lined) stanza, working nwith a haiku by Hamish Managua Gunn.

    1. Thank you so much! Luna, the cat in the photo, is adventurous, she loves climbing trees and hunting, while little Mojo prefers to stay indoor with me, usually on my desk or the back of my chair. My muse!
