So many shells so little time #haiku #tanrenga


The goal of this Tan Renga Challenge is to complete the Tan Renga (short -chained poem) started with the haiku. To complete the Tan Renga you have to write the second stanza (7-7) by inspiration of the first stanza (the haiku; 5-7-5):

life from the sea
shipwrecked on the sand
so many shells

(Cathy Tenzo)

life from the sea
shipwrecked on the sand
so many shells

carefully carried away

by local inhabitants
