Crossing the Footbridge – TRM

Tan Renga Challenge Month (TRM)
at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.

Lolly presents “crossing the footbridge”:

crossing the footbridge
a sound that comes unbidden …
my wild beating heart

[ … ] your stanza ??????

~~~~~

crossing the footbridge
a sound that comes unbidden …
my wild beating heart
forest cathedral quiets
as the black puma hisses

______________________________________________

A Tan Renga is a short chained poem and is written by two poets. It looks very similar with the Tanka, the only difference is that Tan Renga is written by two poets and the Tanka by one poet. In this Tan Renga Challenge the goal is to write the second stanza (7-7) of the Tan Renga by associating on the image or the words painted in the haiku.
