Morning Glory – tan renga

Morning Glory
morning glory!
the well bucket-entangled,
I ask for water

gently dropping from petals
sweetest morning dew answers

This is my response to Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge Month May 5th, write two lines to follow a given haiku (essentially creating a tanka).
Tanka ~ syllable progression 5-7-5-7-7
Renga ~ Collaborative poetry in which one poet writes the first stanza, which is 3 lines long, with 17 syllables.  The next poet adds the second stanza, a couplet with seven syllables per line.  There may be several stanzas, with writers alternating until the poem is complete.
