I am going to have to try my hand at Tan Renga - often times, when writing Haiku I find myself with more to say than I can cover in those 17 syllables - two more lines of 7 syllables each would give me so much more room to play.

Lou definitely, then you have 2 genres to work with 'The Tanka' a 5-lined poem; and the Tan Renga where the the poemis presented with a link or shift in 2 sections

I have got so comfortable with the normal 5/7/5 Haiku format that I really must get out of the rut and experiment a bit more. This I why I like visiting your blog to be inspired a little. Let's see how far you can push Old Egg.
