The Plum Blossoms Gone

The Plum Blossoms Gone

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #102 “the plum blossoms gone” by Ryokan Taigu


The plum blossoms gone,
They look older than they are,
Ancient cottage eaves.                                           © Ryokan Taigu (1758-1831)

No children play in the shade,
No laughter  sings on the breeze.                       ©Dolores Fegan
