Rengay Through the Seasons #30 Summary

by Masago: Rengay #30 (Mar 23-29, 2008) Summary

Vacant Seat

Patch of daffodils —
the old John Deere parked
by a collapsed barn.

Empty rocking chair —
the cat naps undisturbed.

Swing set —
a vacant seat sways
back and forth.

The kite's tail
hangs from a branch —
spring drizzle.

She rushes to the back —
one "occupied" light is off.

The backhouse door
lies on the ground — a squirrel
sits atop the roof.

The central theme in this rengay is "Unoccupied". A secondary theme of "Seat-related" also worked out: Tractor seat, Rocking chair, Swing's seat, Kite's tail (tale), and Facilities (airplane & backhouse).

Unoccupied - my mind's been like this lately -- this is wonderful!

How very clever, to be able to weave a main theme and a sub-theme together so effectively and gently. Top stuff again!

My mind is always "occupied", I'm just not sure by what...

Masago said...

Pat: Come to think of it, that is also very true. Thanks.
