one deep breath: viewpoint

at the mountain’s peak
poems alive without breathing
words tossed to the wind

they hang in the mist seeping
so completely we forget

–a Renga written with Elizabeth Moore

more renga

pale fingers of aspen
pin-pricked bubble of blood
after October leaves

chills seep into thoughts leaving
bare skin craving winter’s embrace

-a collaboration between Carolyn and myself

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.
