A Word A Week Photo Challenge – Pots

A clay pot sitting in the sun will always be a clay pot…It has to go through the white heat of the furnace to become porcelain.

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge *Basho’s “the old lady cherry”*

This week Carpe Diem Tan Renga inspiration and the first stanza is a not well – known haiku by Matsuo Basho. Our goal is to add the second stanza to it.

the old-lady cherry
in bloom: a remembrance
                                                  of her old age                             (Basho)

feeling rugged bark at my cheek
                             childhood memories return                 (Ese)
