Echoes of the Past – TRM

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

Off the Tippet presents Echoes of the Past:

echoes of the past
resound into the present
a dream of the sea

[ … ] your stanza ??????

~~~~~

echoes of the past
resound into the present
a dream of the sea
enchantment of childhood dreams
shimmery mermaid beckons

______________________________________________

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.
