Rengay Through the Seasons #26 [1]

by Jon Davey (jd), and Vaughn Seward (vs);
Rengay #26 (Feb 24 - Mar 1, 2008) Verse 1 (of 6):


Hail storm — sparrow and sparrowhawk / sheltered in a blackthorn. /jd

This rengay was written with Jon Davey who was born in Redruth, England. He gained a degree in English and European Thought & Literature from the Cambridge College of Art and Technology and later became a primary school teacher in Camborne, Cornwall. Jon is now living in a converted barn in the small village of Brea with partner Philippa and family. Jon began writing haiku in the early 1980's.

Masago and Jon were partners in a couple of Off-the-Wall Rengay exercises in July, 2007:

*Hail in Britain, where Jon is from, can occur at any time of the year, including early spring.
