Rengay Through the Seasons #13 Summary

by Masago: Rengay #11 (Nov 25 - Dec 1, 2007) Summary

Pink Cascades

Cascades of pink / among windowsill cacti — first openings.
Popcorn out of the microwave — steam bursts from the corners.
Weight watcher — the host offers her another / piece of cake.
Channel surfing — a new gadget shown on / the shopping channel.
Crowded holiday mall — she squeezes his hand tighter.
A stubborn cork / finally comes loose — bottle of Rosé.

The central theme of this rengay is "Small Dangers". Each verse highlights a small danger, none of which are too serious and in most cases unlikely to happen for most of us. The other theme is "Openings". Thanks to Floots for first pointing out this theme. Thanks also to Polona for our third theme of "Indulgences".

In verse 5 there is mention of a holiday mall (e.g. in the US Thanksgiving is a late autumn holiday). The "she" in this verse could be a mother squeezing her son's hand. It could also be a man and woman with the squeeze being a little symbol of the love between them. The small danger is that they may be spotted in the mall and their secret relationship could be exposed.

The feeling of celebration in verse 5 and the feeling of Rosé wine being poured in verse 6 reminds one of the pink cascades in verse 1.

"small dangers": a fascinating theme, effectively realized.

Masago said...

Bill: your kind comments are much appreciated. Thanks.

I so agree with polona.
even hand holding is an indulgence for an old married couple out walking the mall.

This is great!
