wrapped in choking vines ~ tan renga

wrapped in choking vines

wrapped in choking vines
dry wood and broken branches
untended orchard

 life without love is like a tree
without blossoms or fruit
                    Khalil Gibran

Carpe Diem’s Tan Renga Challenge September 2018 Chained Together III (17) Without Blossom has a twist (Hineri).  Kristjaan has framed a quote by Khalil Gibran as a two line closing verse (ageku), and we are asked to create the hokku to precede it. My hokku (haiku) appears in blue.
