1658



in the morning heat
after the twitterings
ripened cherries

she climbs a ladder
to pick fruit sun ripened -
this old woman

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #85, "the ancient woman"


the ancient woman
cherry tree blooms in old age
an event to remember
(Basho)

like a young girl she stands
strong in the wind, the old sakura
(Chèvrefeuille)


she climbs a ladder
to pick fruit sun ripened -
this old woman

I talked to a woman yesterday who said that in her family, girls weren't allowed to climb trees. . . that was her brother's prerogative. I hope she'll be a tree climbing wise woman elder!
