AWAITING

building a bridge
between snow-covered mountains
white egrets/ mb

piercing dawn before the sun
song birds and their choruses/gc

don't be like me
even though we're like the melon
split in two/ mb

yearning for a sail to set
us years apart no longer/ gc

wait awhile
cut the soy beans to the sound
of monks beating bowls/ mb

rosary beads the colour of
morning light as she rolls them/ gc

path of the sun
the hollyhock leans into
early summer rain/ mb

two shadows frame the path
as midday cast her divide/ gc

plovers fly away
the evening grows later with
cold mountain winds/ mb

seashells no longer carry
fairy tales with glass slippers/ gc

summer rain
where the poem card peeled off
a mark on the wall/ mb

our initials enclosed
a heart carved in a tree trunk/ gc

Tan Renga Challenge September 2018 Chained Together III (11) the dim glow of a campfire

[...] "He felt so lost, he said later, that the familiar studio felt like a haunted valley deep in the mountains, with the smell of rotting leaves, the spray of a waterfall, the sour fumes of fruit stashed away by a monkey; even the dim glow of the master's oil lamp on its tripod looked to him like misty moonlight in the hills."[...]

From the above quote : this distillation is our prompt
