CARPE DIEM Tan Renga: “red tear-stained eyes”

Hello friends!

This week’s Carpe Diem’s Tan Renga #7 Challenge is to complete this haiku stanza by Chevrefeuille:

Decomposed flowers
Silent witness of a relative
Red tear-stained eyes

(Chèvrefeuille)

The challenge is to create two, seven-syllable lines that follow the first stanza to complete the Tan Renga.

My offering this week deals with firearms at home because careless gun owners that fail to lock up their guns and/or unload their unattended weapons, cause unfortunate gun accidents that take the lives of many young children every year.

According to an article by USA Today, “Guns in the Home Proving Deadly for Kids,” it says:

“Although mass shootings get more attention, children are far more likely to be killed at home…” (by unattended and not stored properly, firearm)

Second stanza:

gun horseplay bleeds disaster
Curious child pulls trigger

Let me put it all together with a picture to go:

Curious child pulls trigger
