Tan Renga Challenge # 35

17 May

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #35, Managua’s “let the ravens come”

  Credits: Raven
Here is the haiku by Managua which is our first stanza (5-7-5) of this Tan Renga.
let the ravens come
let them smile as they pick the flesh
from the battlefield

Managua of “Fresh From a Hermit’s Forest

tan renga:

let the ravens come
let them smile as they pick the flesh
from the battlefield
let life’s blood like river flow
as death rattles fall silent
(pmc)

    Superbly evocative and dramatic.

    I always wondered why battlefields couldn’t be put to more productive use – after so many years go by can we not benefit from better memories.

    Could not death rattles be cultivated to bring the sweet music of feeding the hungry?

    Thanks for your visit to my post on CD post on Exile

    Very well done Patricia … you have made this Tan Renga stronger and giving it a much more powerful feeling … that last line is great.
