Rengay Through the Seasons #4 [1-4]

by Karina Klesko (kk), and Vaughn Seward (vs);
Rengay 4, Verses 1-4 (of 6):

Autumn afternoon — rose petals cling / to the cemetery gate. /kk
Embracing at the door... an ebony hair on his shirt. /vs
Harvest moon — red acrylic fingernails / open old love letters. /kk
A ladybug / holds tight to a twig — cool wind. /vs

[This is just a little reminder that rengay is not narrative. It isn't supposed to tell a story although sometimes it works out that way. The major two aspects of rengay are that there is at least one common theme throughout the poem and that each verse somehow links to its previous verse. As well, rengay partners strive to produce something creative, interesting and poetically pleasing.]
