Embers: Composing Tan Renga

scattered in sand

embers of a saltwood fire

face to face with stars

~

bright red still smoldering hot

touch not, but savor the warmth

* The challenge was to compose the Tan Renga: I have written the second stanza in order to do so. The first stanza is by the poet Jane Reichhold.

* Written in response of Carpe Diem’s Tan Renga Challenge
