one deep breath: renga

This weeks prompt at one deep breath is friends & companions. As an added exercise we were encouraged to write a renga, which is traditionally written in collaboration with someone else.  The form consists of a haiku followed by a couplet of two seven syllable lines.  My good friend Elizabeth collaborated with me on the following renga.
songs speak to hearts
words that could have been rain
if shy lips had spoke

they gaped, drenched, at the rainbows
steam rising from the space between
more haiku and renga from the poets at one deep breath. 
another renga made with a different friend
