This poem was written for Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #61, Georgia’s “a dream in a dream”, another great prompt hosted by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. In this challenge a haiku by Georgia of Bastet and Sekhmet’s Library was our inspiration and we were asked to take her hokku and add two lines in approximately 7/7 syllables, to create a two-person tanka, a tan renga. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here.
