Winter Chrysanthemum

winter chrysanthemum,
wearing nothing
but its own light                              Mizuhara Shūōshi (1892-1981)

fragile from the bitter frost
radiant smiling sunshine             Kim M. Russell, 12th February 2020

In today’s episode of Tan Renga Wednesday, our goal is to create a Tan Renga with a given haiku by Mizuhara Shūōshi.
