Tan Renga: feeling alone

Today’s tanka comes from the Carpe Diem Haiku challenge #81. The haiku was written by Yozakura and the last two stanzas, to complete the tanka, were written by me. See the challenge post for more information.

Tan Renga Challenge- Howling Wind

Today is Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Tan Renga challenge day, one that I’m beginning to look forward to each week. The specific details can be found here but in short the first three stanzas are the inspiration and the last two are my addition to (hopefully) make it complete.
