Written for:  Carpe Diem #1769 – free choice of prompt, and make it a soliloquy no renga
As you (maybe) know the “solo-renga” has at least six (6) stanza. You start with the “hokku” (starting verse) and end with the “ageku” (closing verse).


black spots on red
tickles my hand as it crawls
delicate ladybug

your touch is good luck omen
teach me to live a good life

sit on beach chair
under rippling umbrella
shadows cast on book

yellow-beaked blackbird, curious
watches from top of fence

feral fat cat
looks up trunk of maple tree
climbing squirrel


many creatures inhabit
the earth they share with us

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.
