RENKU

Junicho Renku: Natural Light

       

twilight…
some boys throw sticks
at the conker trees

frank    

reflected in the axe
a sky of fluffy clouds

doreen    

early morning,
applying her make-up
by natural light

frank    

back from a shortened walk
our heater turned to high

doreen    

on the wall
a photo of the full moon
just above Big Ben

frank    

thinking of a past lover,
flickers from the hearth

doreen    

St. George’s Day,
she scatters his ashes
onto the sea

frank    

my purse bulges
with not enough

doreen    

band in the park,
a small boy dances
to “Amazing Grace”

frank    

no matter how hard I blow
the fallen leaf stays put

doreen    

outside the church
a bouquet of carnations
trodden underfoot

frank    

making waves, our toy boat
safely reaches shore

doreen
