Smouldering Fireplace

smouldering fireplace
the sweet perfume of burned herbs
loneliness grabs my throat                                  Chèvrefeuille

spent embers crumble and fall
in smoke of burnt-out passion                            Kim M. Russell, 1st May 2019

My response to Carpe Diem #1654 Tan Renga Challenge (1) Smouldering Fireplace

Today we have the first episode of May 2019 in a month of Tan Renga Challenges.

A Tan Renga looks like a tanka, but instead of being written by one poet the Tan Renga is written by two as a short chained verse of two stanzas: the first stanza has three lines and the second stanza has two lines.
