Good Friday – Tan Renga

 

Written for the Carpe Diem Challenge #31:    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.

in the backyard
the rainbow in the birdbath breaks –
a sipping magpie

in the backyard
the rainbow in the birdbath breaks –
a sipping magpie
three o’clock on Good Friday
darkened skies remember Him

      YES HE WILL, Brian — my grandmother shared with me when I was little about darkened skies, and for as many years as I can remember no matter the weather before or after 3 pm on Good Friday – it always darkens. Today, no exception. Thank you for stopping by! Happy Easter to you and your family.
