toasting (tan renga)

boiled rice slop
his old lady fans the treat
with evening coolness (Basho)

cups of green tea clink
toast of love and family

chanting songs,
grandmother’s warm embrace
cousins holding hands

    • I had time to read the entire prompt post…so maybe I was totally off but Basho hokku inspired me to see this. When there are lots of people (family or friends) the food is secondary:)
