A Secret Meeting



in the old barn
behind the straw bales
a secret meeting
                     (Kristjaan)

passionate playful delights
let there be no sun tonight
            


A Tan Renga is a form of poetry comprising of two verses, each written by different poets. The first one follows the 5-7-5 syllable count format while the second follows the 7-7 format. To know more about this form, click here.

Here, the first three lines are written by Kristjaan, while the last two lines have been penned down my me.

  3. I was reading up the link about Tan Renga. I think spontaneity is the key word in this form; a simultaneous urge between two poets which makes up for the connect. You've again excelled in putting forth vibrant imagery. And also congratulations to your co-poet for giving you such a romantic cue.
