Haiku – Cherry Blossoms Fall

The challenge today is to complete a special kind of Japanese poetry called a tan renga. Poets work together completing poems of three line stanzas followed by two line stanzas. Here is the prompt haiku, the first stanza, by Shirao:

hito koishi hitoboshi koro wo sakura chiru

yearning fills my heart
when the candles are lit;
Cherry blossoms fall

And my response:

silent puddles at my feet
dreams go unfulfilled tonight

This haiku was prompted by the challenge over at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Drop by to read some great poetry.
