A Summer Renga
By: Cara Holman, vivinfrance, brenda w, 1sojournal, Linda Goin, Lisa Hills, pieceofpie
sweltering heat- [Cara Holman]
children laughing and running
through lawn sprinklers
a dragonfly hovers
above a blade of grass
Cold, cold, wet August cold. [vivinfrance]
through gloom of speckled window.
Warmth, warmth, cosy warmth,
welcome comfort, hug of a quilt.
Rain rain go away [brenda w]
dissipate the cloudy day
sun rise, dry the sky
twirl through meadows
and let your hair fly!
Snaggled hair and blush [1sojournal]
on cheeks, kissed by sun
while running wild
a child, a dragonfly all are met
in net of summer’s warming smile
Wild with heat and sweat [Linda Goin]
You carry summer with you
in berry kisses
hold me tight before you fly
like summer into autumn
The honey bees [Lisa Hills]
are jumping on the purple
everyday they gather
the nectar for their hive.
“Quickly!” they buzz.
“For we must finish before
the sun has gone!”
cool summer drifting breeze [pieceofpie]
open window invitation
subdue the heat within
sweltering shadows simmer
dancing tango flaming fire
twilight slowly overtakes [Cara Holman]
the sky, sleepy children
shut their eyes
the dragonfly and honey bee
in silent slumbers repose…
Such a great idea! And it reminds me that we haven’t had a collaborative prompt yet at BTP
Sorry I missed out on the fun. I had such good intentions!
A collaborative prompt at Big Tent Poetry– now that would be fun! What I like the best is the unexpected directions it takes.
What fun! Thanks for opening your pages to fellow poets, Cara. This was brilliant!
That was fun, Linda! We’ll have to do it again sometime. Maybe a renga for each season… hmm…
hi cara, thank you for the opportunity to participate.. oh that came out beautifully….
