Old Beacon – TRM

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

WabiSabit presents:

old beacon
hailing all strangers –
mind the land

[ … ] your stanza ??????

~~~~~

old beacon
hailing all strangers –
mind the land
widow’s watch traversed
yearning for her mate

______________________________________________

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.
