Rengay Through the Seasons #18 [1-6]

by Masago: Rengay #18 (Dec 30 to Jan 5, 2008), Verses 1-6 (of 5)

A cardinal settles / among the tree's twigs — falling snow.
Ice fog hangs in the air — an owl perches on a stump.
Clear and sunny — mouse tracks lead under / a half-buried log.
Below a drift — the squirrel uncovers a stash / of pine cones.
A cow munches on hay — eavestrough icicles form.
A blizzard envelopes / the red barn — two horses / face the wind.

David: Thank you, my friend and greetings to you.

Richard: Is that Aussie slang?

John: Thank you.

Pamela: I'm sure you are getting better. :-) Thank you.

Polona: Many thanks!

Richard Kay said...

The term is defined in 'The art of sharting' on my blog. It'll put a smile on your face.

Richard: Ah, I see. Well I don't think there's any skid marks on their undies! :-)
