Tan Renga: Sacred Grove

in the sacred grove:
a cool wind blows

the smoke from incense whirl
stirring of the gathering

the shrine
in the sacred grove:
a cool wind blows

the crows come calling
the leaves are all atwitter

the shrine
in the sacred grove:
a cool wind blows

then comes cry of an eagle
above the sound of the leaves

Tan Renga:Parables

ancient walls
covered in parables
speak to those who see

in voices through the ages
the lessons remain the same
