Renhai Reflections 85: Keep Out

Keep Out

A Renhai by Karina Klesko (kk) & Vaughn Seward (vs)

Crosswalk traffic —
three Hail Mary's on the way
to the other side. /kk

A tree's branches all bare — /vs
paint peels off the 'Keep Out' sign. /kk

No Smoking —
the "No" crossed out with
a felt marker. /vs

Scenes from daily life, Masago..

The first one made me smile and then laugh! :)

2nd and 3rd --

Signs on the road -- who cares about it....the keeper forgets about it first, the public seldom looks at it!! :)

I like these - I love spotting signs and the changes that happen to there, with weather, wear or interference. And I love Karina's first one - I almost hear it light a song lyric in my head, it has great rhythm.

Hi, Vaughn sent me this link and it is nice to see the feedback .

Since the middle verse in a rehhai is established first, then the haiku , the first verse was fun becasue of the double meaning of ' other side' ......It was fun working with Vaughn and learning how to compose renhai, this may have been my first one. :)

All the Best, Karina
