by Masago: Rengay #46 (Jul 13-19, 2008), Verses 1-6 (of 6)
After the storm... the ground receives a kiss / from the rose.
Our lovers' quarrel ends — the make-up smooch begins.
She presses / a tissue between her lips — lipstick remains.
Perched on a stick — he pecks at the budgie / in the mirror.
The soccer ball rises — his first forward heading.
The politician / stops to bless a baby — soft, pink forehead.
