Riversong

 

riversong
wind blown from autumn trees
a stream of gold                                      (© Jane Reichhold)
.
 songs light our path to winter
 as riches crumble to loam.           (© ontheland)

This short poem is called a Tan Renga. Tan Renga looks like a tanka but is written by two people.   In this case the first ‘stanza’ is written by Jane Reichhold.  The second (final two lines) is my response, prompted by a  Carpe Diem feature in honor of Jane Reichhold: “Carpe Diem Universal Jane #3: Riversong”.
