Shiki’s Persimmon

when I ate a persimmon
the bell rang
the Horyuji temple                         Shiki

in a grove of sunset fruit
the hum of evening prayer          Kim M. Russell, 15th January 2020

My response to Carpe Diem’s Tan Renga Wednesday (9): I ate a persimmon

It’s Tan Renga Wednesday and our challenge is to complete a tan renga by adding the second stanza of two lines with approximately 7-7 syllables. This week we’ve been given a haiku by Shiki.
