Gathering Seashells – TRM

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

Sun of Simply Charming presents:


gathering seashells
while ocean tide rise and falls
two sisters bicker

[ … ] your stanza ??????

~~~~~

gathering seashells
while ocean tide rise and falls
two sisters bicker
with pant legs rolled, feet submerged
who will carry bucket home?

~~~~~

gathering seashells
while ocean tide rise and falls
two sisters bicker
jealousy sparks their rival
dark-haired stranger strolls away

______________________________________________

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.

    This is wonderful. My mother and aunt both have told me stories of when they were girls and had to carry the milk home in a bucket. Once, they argued so that they left the bucket of milk in the middle of the road. Needless to say, there were consequences!
