Collaboration piece between my wife and I, our try at a haikai no renga - a predecessor of the haiku.

5-7-5's: Myself
7-7's: My Wife (Tumblr ivory-empress)

Summer's collision

entwined twin souls beneath trees

passion breathes between

 

Roots relieved by soft reprieve

nutrient heaven achieved

 

Leaves fall gift received

Autumnal fog blanketing

soothes weary cracked sooth

 

Scorpions lie rest in piles

crackling blankets for miles

 

Flaked water drifting

tears frozen encased by time

Winter chills to bone

 

By the opaque sky we'll try

through end of year to slide home

 

Marching ents emerge

fresh trunks dew dropped drink again

new life springs in chains

 

Growing pains and quantic change

Faes of phase dance rhythmic rains

So cool! It's been a while since I've read one of these, so the nostalgia is real. You and your wife make a great team, and hopefully, you can post more of your collabs in the future. :)
