River Stones – Tan Renga

 

Written for the Carpe Diem Challenge #55  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 a desert land
stones from rivers far away
muttering dark tales

~~~~~

in a desert land
stones from rivers far away
muttering dark tales
pilgrims and pirates travel
along barrages of woe
