One Yellow Leaf – Tan Renga

 

Written for the Carpe Diem Challenge #40:    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.

clinging to the bank
where water wrestles with rock –
one yellow leaf

clinging to the bank
where water wrestles with rock –
one yellow leaf
autumn’s transition evolves
masterpiece of leaves one by one

  1. This is lovely Becca! I love the image of autumn being a masterpiece, and each leaf being an additional stroke or an additional line of music — this is a great tan renga! 🙂
