Rengay Through the Seasons #45 [1-6]

by Masago: Rengay #45 (Jul 6-12, 2008), Verses 1-6 (of 6)

City park — azalea petals among / cigarette butts.
Charred forest remains — pink fireweed blossoms.
The front lawn, long and going to seed — beds of gout weed.
Weathered stump — a green sprig emerges / from the moss.
A rusted bottle cap — clumps of brown lichen.
Coloured chalk / blossoms — a flower bouquet / on the pavement.

The kids have a big drawing on the sidewalk here - they've been playing hopscotch for the past week.
Beauty amidst the ugly - yes that could be it...

Masago said...

Andrew: Love to see that!

John: Thanks.

Janice: Love to see that too. That is more or less the theme although I wasn't really trying to contrast the beauty with ugliness although I see now many of the verses can be seen that way. Thanks.
