On the Sand A Renhai by Gillena Cox (gc)*, and Vaughn Seward (vs) Written Oct 10-18, 2008
A stroll on the beach — another flip-flop among / the high tide debris. /vs Chip-chip shells splayed on the sand — /gc the fishermen spread their nets. /vs An empty bucket / beside the sculptured castle giant sandy feet. /gc
*Gillena lives in Trinidad, West Indies.
Note: Inspired by a recent blog comment (thanks JEM), I have decided that from now on we'll post just the Renhai and on the following day post the related notes.
From "The Haiku Anthology" I became interested in Haiku and I have since written numerous haiku, senyru, and tanka. "Masago", my haiku pen-name, means "grain(s) of sand" in Japanese. I have recently started learning Esperanto and Japanese. A few years ago I developed a new eastern verse form which we now call 'Renhai'.
