Ancient warrior ghosts—soliloquy no renga

Ancient warrior ghosts

mists over the foreign highlands

waiting for the full moon

©️Chèvrefeuille

.

legends of our ancestors

our questions unanswered

.

wind-spun leaves falling

barren branches touching sky

taste the autumn rain

.

here is yesterday’s footpath

buried under winter snow

.

full moon rising

blood surges in beating hearts

silver lights the night

.

M L King’s sword of courage

host of heroes standing by

This short Solo Renga is for Carpe Diem’s Weekend Meditation #41 Soliloquy no Renga “ancient warrior ghosts”. The opening haiku is written by Chèvrefeuille. In a regular Renga people take turns in writing alternating two-line and three-line stanzas. In a solo renga one person writes all that follows the opening haiku.
