Many thanks to Georgia for compiling our renga over the course of three days — and for playing renga to begin with! As always it was fun!

For those of you new to renga, one person writes a haiku / hokku, then a second person responds with two lines in 7/7. Then the first person provides 5/7/5. And so on. Although there are many modern variations, depending on the goals and moods of the poets.

From Gold to White From Gold to White

Jen from Blog it or Lose it! and I were chatting over a haiga the other day when we fell into a renga, the results of which is the reason for this post!  Jen’s verse are Blue and mine are Maroon … the renga developed over three days, it began on the 25th of March and ended today, and as always I find it interesting to see the evolution that the renga takes, if you wish to see the original, click the link ‘haiga’ above!  We hope you enjoy!

muggy heat
sweat dripping off our brows
awaiting autumn

in a distant green rumble
thunderheads roiling

no March dunderheads
a sweet rain-filled wind blows
greening rain drops fall

underfoot, the carpet of brown
leaps into clover

squish slosh goop
walking in the muddy fields
muddying the clover

a single raindrop
rests in a drooping white blossom

a tear…

  1. As I mentioned over at Georgia’s, I always enjoy seeing the two of you bouncing images back and forth – my favourite section is probably the ‘shared haiku’ that appears in –
