Written for: Carpe Diem #1847 Renga With Jane Reichhold +++ Dancing Lights (Renga: Juunichoo)
Today I was reading in one of Jane Reichhold's Poetry Collections and immediately thought "It's Time Again For A Renga With Jane". So I took a dive into her wonderful dictionary of haiku and extracted a nice series of haiku from "Summer", "Celestial". I gathered six (6) beautiful haiku about clouds to challenge you all with.
Renga, or chained poem, is a nice way of collaborate poetry. The goal is to add your six(6) two lined strofes to the given haiku written by Jane through association.
Here are the six (6) haiku by Jane Reichhold:
beach tent billows
in the summer blue
like white whales in the ocean
snorting into lap of water (Sara)
out of the sun's way
changing color of dawn
from lemon to murky grey (Sara)
raised to new heights
showers to water blooms
thirsty in arid earth (Sara)
clouds sprinkle the sun
diamonds gleaming, winking
floating through a blue sea (Sara)
colored by open wall
a driftwood lair
turning to burnt umber
settling in a pattern (Sara)
curving with the land
a rainbow of clouds
moves out to sea
billowing tents return
painted on cerulean sky (Sara)

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.
