Early Morning – Tan Renga

 

Written for the Carpe Diem Challenge # 57:    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.

Original Poet:   Georgia of  Bastet and Sekhmet’s Library

early morning
silence before the rising sun
raindrops on a branch

[ … ] your stanza ??????

~~~~~

early morning
silence before the rising sun
raindrops on a branch
dewy prisms glint in first light
gently sprinkling ladybugs
