All very food, Warren. If I had to pick a favorite, it might be "ancient pine" for its fusion of the ancient and the present, but I could make a case for any one of them.
Thanks Bill - I tend toward the dead crow haiku, but then, crow haiku are among my favorites. Warren
I like the pine haiku the best of these. Recently I wrote this:sunsetlimb by limb the pinein shadowAdelaide
Hi Adelaide - I had this one workshopped through AHA a year or two ago - I just didn't want you to think I copied it (and I know you didn't copy mine) - nothing new under the sun, as they say. Warren
You saw your pine at sunrise; I saw mine at sunset. They make a good pair.I could revise mine to two lines so as to cap yours for a tan renga:ancient pinethe sun climbs itlimb by limb wgat the end of the daylimb by limb in shadow absAdelaideAdelaide
Tan renga - I've seen the term and seen the poems, but know absolutely nothing about them. I need to read about them. I'm not even sure how they are formed, etc. Thanks, Adelaide.
Nice set; i would leave out the word 'it' in Line2 of ku#1much lovegillena
That's funny, Gillena - I added the "it" just before posting to the blog. Shoulda known the original version was better. Thanks kiddo.Warren
