Deeper Darkness


Written for the Carpe Diem Challenge:  write a Tan Renga.

Tan Renga is a two stanza poem with 5-7-5 and 7-7 syllables (5-7-5-7-7).  Unlike a Tanka written by one poet, Tan Renga is written by two.  Poet One writes the  5-7-5 and Poet Two completes 7-7.

after fireworks
the silence is clearer
darkness is deeper

~~~~~

after fireworks
the silence is clearer
darkness is deeper
nightlife acoustics echo
white cat explores moonshadows

    … listening becomes easier
    music sounds sweeter
    the air smells cleaner
    bird songs are louder
    smiles are purer
    laughter becomes more free.
