its absence haunting my thoughts ~ tan renga


Carpe Diem #1660 Tan Renga – wisteria asks us
to use a haiku by Yosa Buson
(in blueto create a tanka.

In the moonlight,
The color and scent of the wisteria
Seems far away.

               Buson

its absence haunting my thoughts
even as the pale light fades
