The goal of the Tan Renga Challenge
is to make the Tan Renga complete
with the second two-line stanza (7-7)

first stanza:

cricket silence
.
between scraping sounds

autumn begins                                 (Jane Reichhold)

 
second stanza (7-7): 
 
????????????????????
????????????????????
.
Complete the Tan Renga with your second stanza.
That second stanza has to be written out
of an association from the first stanza

mysterious land.

lilting music draws me near
.
curious eyes stare

language puzzles
.
unfamiliar sights excite
.
fish out of water

in your writing.

THE CURE

.

When SHE  walks into the room

heads always turn.  It is her eyes,

everyone says.  “Something about her eyes.”

It helps that she was gorgeous, perfect

figure, expensive clothes and hair that

is “just right” and never mussed.

.

There is a glow about her that draws

people to her.  Annoying…when SHE

shows up, the rest of us might as well

go home.  And what’s worse, SHE seems

nice.

.
It is discouraging to be in the same

room with “HER”… everyone knows who

“HER” is.

.

I have a cure for that

divine out of this world gaze of hers…

large DARK sunglasses.
