Fingertips – Tan Renga

Written for the Carpe Diem Challenge #54:    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.

Fingertips

fingertips
stroking scales of pine cone
– forest memories
needles entwined in their hair
lovers laugh in elation
