[The idea behind this Renhai was conceived by Ron (father of Vaughn). He proposed using a word with several meanings (homonym) and have it appear in each of the three verses. Check the notes for further details about how this Renhai was written and some background info about each verse.]
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'.
