RENKU

a Cherita collaboration: Blue Star

       

first blue star

   

the lake sinks deeper
and smudges the setting sky

   

tussock grass
its ochre hue awash
with a farmhouse light

thoughts of home

   

table laid with white linen
the crumble golden

   

in a voice melodic
and strange to my ear
i call down the sun

Sheila Windsor

rising moon

   

darkness leans
against the window panes

   

a Satie Sarabande
in harmony
with fresh-cut flowers

Hortensia Anderson

frozen potato blooms

   

the field shimmers
with freshly ploughed soil

   

at dawn
the newly hung bed-sheets
soften mother's shadow

Ron  
* * * * * * * *
   

beneath the eaves

   

silken threads
twist and turn a fly

   

sleeping bag
rank and unravelled
this too is taken away

Sheila  
* * * * * * * *
   

black clouds disperse

   

up above a world
that has turned to dusk

   

in the hard sand
i write haiku, read and erased
only by the sea
