Mystic Purple Flames – CD Tan Renga

Written for the Carpe Diem Challenge # 59:    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:   Panchali of Peach Oleander

arise from the spirit’s stalks
chill my autumn heart

mystic purple flames
arise from the spirit’s stalks
chill my autumn heart
early frost bears on blossoms
designs on field pumpkins

◊◊◊

mystic purple flames
arise from the spirit’s stalks
chill my autumn heart
essence of my soul bares warmth
Divine Love blankets me
