reflections of my life

Today’s Carpe Diem prompt come from Rebecca Givens beautiful haiku, I will attempt to echo the sentiment in her verse.

Celebrate with us at Carpe Diem as we spend the month writing Tan Renga.  Tan Renga is a short-linked poem (written by two poets) which has two stanzas. The first stanza has 5-7-5 syllables and the second stanza has 7-7 syllables. The second stanza is a response to the first and has to have a ‘kind of link’ with the first stanza, I call that link an echo of the first stanza. Try your hand at Tan Renga.

  1. Nice shift away from literal flroews here. Inspired can be read as three syllables, though, so if you put an elision in, like “inspir’d,” people will know to cram it into two. You know, bean-counters, like me. 🙂
