“The Paper Lanterns”

Written for the Carpe Diem Challenge #14:    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.

the paper lanterns
float away to neverland
pure light of spirits
              

[ … ] your stanza ??????


~~~~~
the paper lanterns
float away to neverland
pure light of spirits
through chimes gentle winds whisper
dreams freely glide on moonbeams
