The Crow: A Summer Renga (part i)

Ashley, Cindy and I have teamed up again to write a renga to celebrate each of the seasons in 2013. And already the excitement is building between us! We are also hatching some other exciting plans at present, so stay tuned. For now, the first six links in our summer renga, ‘the crow’.

*

the crow
has a song for it
summer heat

*

the drip, drip
of humidity

*

they gave up
because of the highway
silverfish, so soft bodied

*

on the front stairs
nothing but your shoes

*

autumn moon
your side of the bed
empty

*

shoppers notice lights
already  turned on

    These are gorgeous. I’ve been experimenting with renga, and the difficulty of the form has enhanced my appreciation for instances where it works. I love the silverfish. I also love that these renga include photos as links. Off to comment on Part II now.
