ripples #42 ~ a renga

a cloudburst of stars
concocting constellations
coruscating skies

***

written in response to

pellucid pathways
ferrying northern lights
to the astral lighthouse
Great Nebula clouds starbeams
Argo Navis sails off course

Ripples ~ This renga is a collaborative  writing effort of David of The Skeptic’s Kaddish and me of Mindfills. David’s words, completing the tanka, are in italics and in bold. What started with this haiku is now a renga of 42 verses 🙂  You can read the whole renga here ☺️ and you can read all about our journey  here and here.
Lots of love and gratitude to you all for reading and your kind words of appreciation. 🙏

ripples #41 ~ a renga

Renga written in response to

a tender night hums
fireflies mimic starlight
dreams drift on ~ seeking
Polaris paving phantasms
projecting paths pellucid

a renga for….

dusk draws the day’s drapes
softening sounds of sunlight
~ a lullaby yawns                         twilight nestles newborn in
night transformed by tender tunes
