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. :)
