Such a Still Water – tan renga

Such a Still Water

such a still water
even the dragonfly
splash it with the tail

setting sun walks on water
no footsteps to show its path

This is my response to Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge Month May 27th, write two lines to follow a given hokku, essentially creating a tanka.  The original haiku is by classical haiku poet Tan Taigi (1709-1771).
