Written for:  Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #4 – Soliloquy no renga (solo renga):  Celebration

“A “soliloquy no renga” counts a minimum of 6 stanza and a maximum of 12 stanza. This renga form is the same like a normal renga, so you have to create the stanza through association on scenes and images.”

finally winter has gone
early plum blossoms

finally winter has gone
early plum blossoms

promise of spring in the air
love like blossoms, blooms anew

crickets chatter
frog croaks sound from lily pad
touch of cupid’s arrow

lover’s hands entwine as they stroll
alongside a crystal lake

a stem of green grows
from soil, free of icy coat

morning doves coo on white fence
striped in first light of sun

puddles pool in garden
where snow falls covered ground
birds bathe

breeze of joy, gift of nature
fertile earth celebrates


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
