“Red Tear-stained Eyes”


Written for the Carpe Diem Challenge #7:  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.

decomposed flowers

companion of memories
surrounded by etched marble

  2. Very nice completion of the Tan renga Becca, I like the way how you’ve completed it by writing about a graveyard, without mentioning the word ‘graveyard’, very well done.
