“In the Stillness”


Written for the Carpe Diem Challenge #6:  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.

in the stillness
between the arrival of guests
the peonies                                  (Buson)

[ … ] your stanza ??????

~~~~~

in the stillness
between the arrival of guests
the peonies
velvet and fragrant favors
accentuating bride’s blush
