Chestnut

autumn moonlight–
a worm digs silently
into the chestnut                                      Basho (Tr. Jane Reichhold)

soon both will fall from the tree
brief life on a small planet                    Kim M. Russell, 8th May 2019

My response to Carpe Diem #1659 Tan Renga Challenge Month May 2019 (6) chestnut

In a new episode of Carpe Diem’s Tan Renga Challenge in May, we have a haiku written by Matsuo Basho to work with and Chèvrefeuille has shared an interesting background story to it.
