Carpe Diem #1612 Tan Renga – plumegrass asks us
to use a haiku (c. 711) by Ō no Yasumaro (in blue) to create a tanka.
While you decline to cry,
high on the mountainside
a single stalk of plumegrass wilts.
Ō no Yasumaro (tr. Michael R. Burch)
drought in breeze from across plains
snow melting on mountaintop
