Renhai Reflections 87: An Encounter

An Encounter

A Renhai by Vaughn Seward (vs) & Zhanna P. Rader (zh.r)

The boy runs ahead,
pulling me by a long string —
I soar up-up-up... /vs

A violet friend comes near - /vs
we dive and glide together. /zh.r

Circling each other,
getting dangerously close —
down... down-down... /zh.r

[This Renhai is another in the "another's perspective" style and was written for young readers.]

Although this was written for younger readers it has much to offer older ones too. I like the emotion each verse carries.

Pamela said...

love it love it.
We're heading to the beach Saturday - Kite country.
And I'll think about this when we are dug into the sand, holding on

cute on a superficial level
and much deeper if one cares to think

Masago said...

Thank you all!

Pamela, now that'll be fun!

Polona, now that you mention it, I see what you mean!
