Ancient warrior ghosts—soliloquy no renga

Ancient warrior ghosts

mists over the foreign highlands

waiting for the full moon



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.
