Plane Song

Written for the Carpe Diem Challenge #53: 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.

Oliana’s “flying home”

power-driven fowl
in rays of a setting sun
flies home…………….(Oliana of Traces of the Soul)

My completion:

power-driven fowl

in rays of setting sun

flies home

gliding with feathered trim

into the deepening night.
