“Silent Cry”

Written for the Carpe Diem Challenge #28:    write a Tan Renga.

Tan Renga is a two stanza poem with 5-7-5 and 7-7 syllables (5-7-5-7-7).  Unlike a Tanka written by one poet, Tan Renga is written by two.  Poet One writes the  5-7-5 and Poet Two completes 7-7.

flight of the eagle
stepping into the world of dreams –
a silent cry

flight of the eagle
stepping into the world of dreams –
a silent cry
mother earth opens her arms
bond of intuition shared

      Awww, thank you, Brenda … it flowed quickly in my brain … some I have to work on several “editions” then compare — this one — first take out and I was done!! 😀

        Those are usually the best sort, and yours was best! I gave it a whirl for the first time, too, but I found myself unable to stop at a 7-7, and I added a haiku. Came out of the blue. Oh, well, I’m just quirky through and through. Peace and Joy, Brenda
