Renku two

 

Firefly Tears Renku (March - May 2005) 

 

Chiran's rain
layers on tears of
fireflies

EL (1)

Australia has no
fireflies -- only sun

RP (2)

For Eli
fireflies, flowers shine--
sing: faa-faa!

ZS (3)

In the bath singing
Fly Me to the Moon

EL (4)

Rabbits in the moon
know the beautiful star
-our earth

MK(5)

Brightest stars tonight
Autumn trees ghost red

RP (6)

nightime pond--
drunken pink blossoms,
kids--fall in.

ZS (7)

Boy with Hayfever --
mountain of tissues

EL (8)


Trees exhale--
Cedars sneeze dust as
Cherries pop corn

TT (9)

In the dark this film
Lights across her face

EL (10)


Bees emerge
from behind ivy --
morning sun

RP (11)

From Peace Dome ruins,
a sudden sadness

EL (12)


Skies darken,
Deep distant rumble --
A loon cries

RP (13)

crow combat--careens
black tears streaking blue

ZS (14)


under bridge
duck shadows sleeping --
north white stream

EL (15)


chorus of May frogs
croak, "It's cold! Where's Spring?"

TT (16)


On the turntable:  The Beatles, "Anthology 1"
