Rengay Through the Seasons #7 [1-6]

by Masago: Rengay #7 (Oct 14-20), Verses 1-6 (of 6)

Autumn lawn... more leaf-mulching than / grass-cutting.
National Geographic — she clips pictures for school.
Grandma blinks / for the fourth straight time — family portrait.
A young man / across the table... a speck / in her eye.
Vacuuming some crumbs — the tinkle of an earring.
Harvest hail — mice in the wheat field / head for cover.

I've vacuumed so many of ear ring backs. Made me nod my head.

another fine series
that final image captures human life all too well
and i smiled ruefully at the vacuuming (missed the post yesterday - had to go to the - ominous roll of drums - big city) :)
