waves pass beneath the branches ~ tan renga

waves pass beneath the branchesOne apple alone
in the abandoned orchard
reddens for winter

 waves pass beneath the branches
gentle wind stirs waist-high grass

Carpe Diem’s Tan Renga Challenge September 2018
Chained Together III (6) An Apple, Alone
(Add to the provided hokku by Patrick Blanche – tr. Michael R. Burch –
to create a tanka)

 Here’s the original haiku in French:
Une pomme, seul
dans le verger abandonné
rougissent pour l’hiver
