Quiet Rhythms A Renhai by Gillena Cox (gc) & Vaughn Seward (vs) Written Oct 29 - Nov 4, 2008

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'.
