Morning Tea

for his morning tea
a monk sits down in utter silence-
confronted by chrysanthemums    

© Matsuo Basho (Tr. unknown)

sacred serene ritual
steeped in solitude of peace

This month at Carpe Diem, we have a Tan Renga challenge. A Tan Renga is typically written by two poets. The first three lines are written by one poet, and the last two by another.
