My response to Carpe Diem #1597 Tan Renga Challenge – February 2019 (1,) everyday for the month of February we are given a haiku to create Tan Renga.

What is a Tan Renga Poetry?

One poet writes the first stanza, which is three lines long 5-7-5 a total of seventeen syllables. Structure as a haiku. The next poet adds the stanza, a couplet with seven syllables per line.
