All 'round the scarecrow / a large flock of loud blackbirds — he wears new old clothes. /db
This rengay was written with Daniela Draghia-Bullas who was born in 1969 in Deva, Romania. She holds a degree in archaeology and museology and has lived with her husband in the U.K. since 2001. Daniela started writing poetry and prose in her teens. Her short stories won her the "Scanteia tineretului" Award in 1988. Her editorial debut was the "Umbra Libelulei" (Dragonfly's Shadow), a haiku anthology. Between 2003 and 2007 she has been a member of the editorial staff of two Romanian magazines. She has also published two books and several of her works have appeared in on-line journals.
I met Daniela via the The Outlaw Poets Yahoo group and since the Spring of 2007 we have written numerous renku and rengay together. Daniela likes to write haiku in the 5-7-5 / 7-7 syllable format so each verse in this eighth rengay of the series is in this format.
