Rengay Through the Seasons #25 Summary

by Masago: Rengay #25 (Feb 17-23, 2008) Summary

Under the Covers

A school of fish
under the lake ice —
deep winter.

Recess, one hour away —
thoughts of fun and snow.

We come inside
after the bell... the smell
of wet woolens.

Science class —
other guys try burning
more than sulfur.

Mid-term exam week —
my candle lit at both ends.

Under the covers
Saturday morning — thinking
about homework.

The central theme in this rengay, of course, is "School"... a topic I'm sure is near and dear to all of us.

Inside our hands, outside our hearts said...

This is interesting writing. I have never tried writing this way. Perhaps I will give it a try. Thank you for showing me a new way.


J. Andrew Lockhart said...

Yes, his one is very close to me. :)

Borut said...

We're all learning... Learning how to learn!?:)

Beautiful. I especially love the way your first one is of a school outside of the traditional sense. And the 'wet woolens' one is so atmospheric.

polona said...

well, school is certainly much more fun in your rengay than it was in reality (for me, at least)
thank you

Pamela said...

so what are the other guys burning?
I remember something about pop bottles when I was in high school. You can't do that with an aluminum can anymore.

Everytime you start a new Rengay I think you can't possibly come up with one as great as the previous. But there you have it.!!!

Tara: My pleasure. Let me know you need if you need any help giving it a try.

Andrew: I can imagine. :-)

Borut: A life-long process!

Jem: Thank you (once in awhile it is fun to use a word-play). :-)

Polona: :-) Thanks.

Pamela: Various substances (and I think in some cases stuff that wasn't so legal(?)). Thank you for your kind words, I hope we can continue reaching your expectations. :-)

I have to confess school wasn't very dear to me. Saturday mornings I sure wasn't thinking about homework. Was certainly my loss. Excellent!!

Masago said...

Pat: Yes, the frustration of not wanting to think about it, and then the annoyance of waking up thinking about it.
