by the mountain spring

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #104 "by the mountain spring" by Goda Virginija Bendoraitienė


Walking in the quiet of the forest with hands gently touching.  The breeze rustles the leaves of the silver maple sending flashes of grey and green.  The binary code of the forest.  Words without sounds.  There, near the spring, stands a once mighty oak.  Dead now with a dried up heart.  The two continue to walk in the silence of the words.

by the mountain spring
we talk about the same things
just in other words

the lips say kiss but the eyes
speak of revolution!

  2. The speech of lips and eyes is often different! An interesting completion of the tanka.
