So, we know it’s going to be autumn today, but do we know what kind of autumn it’s going to be? 😛 Today’s renju, Cara Wilde had the task of providing a 7-7 verse on the theme of autumn.
This is what she came up with :
Sienna rots, dank death calls :
Mabon’s hands held high now yield
This is what Cara says about her verse : ” My autumn kigo word is Mabon*. I continue the themes of fading light (dusk) and everything returning to the earth, leaves ready to rot….but there is the tension between the celebration of the harvest and the pull to go inward (the calling of winter). I change direction with the notion of yielding…ready to go deep and dark!”
* Reference to the autumnal equinox.
