Yesterday, Lisa offered us a second verse on love. That means that today’s renju, Kate Gold, has choices. She can continue with love (one more verse is allowed) or she can change direction : winter, summer, travel, dwellings, shores and mountains are all options.
Kate stuck with love and came up with the 7-7
Trust in the tender yearning :
follow the path that rises
Kate says : ” “Tender yearning” is my kigo for love. I show continuity by developing the re-kindled passion from the last verse into “trust”. I create the feeling of hope as the path rises, lifting spirits and hearts. ‘Rises’ could also be oblique reference to a mountain path.”
So, that’s love done and dusted. I wonder what’s going to happen tomorrow?!
