Rengay Through the Seasons #3 [1-4]

by Masago: Rengay 3, Verses 1-4 (of 6)

Little beggar... squirreling away pine cones / in our roof.
A layer of dark moss, on each cedar shake.
Yellowing larch — the wind shakes more needles / onto the ground.
A seedling fir, nearly covered in leaves — forest clearing.

[Note: I have changed the third verse slightly, from "Dying tree" to "Yellowing larch".]

it is especially close to me as up here we have few deciduous trees and life is measured by the conifers
thank you

Borut said...

Had to look it up: 'larch' - 'macesen' in Slovenian...

I like it... A seedling fir - clearly, a new story emerging... !?:)

Andrew: Glad you like the change (I think you mean you like it better :-) ).

Floots: My pleasure, I know what you mean although around here we do have a fair amount of non-confers.

Borut: I understand... until recently I had seen them around here but I didn't know what they were called. :-)

John: Thanks.

Aurora: Thank you.

Polona: (: [psst... this rengay actually has two themes. :-) ]
