The Buddha Himself – TRM

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

Cathy of Haiku Plate Special presents:

the Buddha himself
did not start enlightened
he walked the path

[ … ] your stanza ??????

~~~~~

the Buddha himself
did not start enlightened
he walked the path
centering meditation
worn embossed beads in his hand

______________________________________________

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.
