Each day in this past year I posted a haiku that became part of a year-long linked haiku project:
I'd like to thank you all for your comments and suggestions for this project. Your support over the past 12 months has been greatly appreciated.
This coming year I will be doing a new project consisting of a set 52 weekly Rengay poems. A Rengay consists of six linked haiku that support a common theme. For more information about Rengay, see the following notes by Joan Zimmerman:
Most Rengay are written collaboratively with two or three participants. They can also be written by one or six individuals. The rengay in this project will primarily be written solo (by me). However, twelve of them, one for each month of the year, will be done as a joint effort with different guest rengay/haiku friends.
Each day of the week I plan to post a different verse from that week's Rengay. On the last day of the week I will post a title, the theme I had in mind, linking details, and technical notes.
I look forward to your comments and suggestions. I plan to tweak verses and adjust Rengay titles based on your feedback.
