Renhai Reflections 96: From, To, & In-Between

[Yesterday we presented a Renhai from the perspective of a crayon. As this was written with the reverse process, the middle verse was written last. We had two variations of this middle verse and so it was decided that both Renhai would be retained. Here is the other variation. Of course, the linking in both Renhai is different.]

From, To, & In-Between
A Renhai by Zhanna P. Rader (zh.r) & Vaughn Seward (vs)

In a small hand,
I glide across the paper —
the trees, a house... red. /zh.r

A dark cardboard chamber — /vs
"Let me out! Let me out!" /zh.r

The puppy's face
grows larger, comes closer —
teeth and gums... /vs

The second one reminds of a gift one of my friends had...the box had this "Let me out" written on it...

the spring- boxer inside emerged to punch on her face...a perfect birthday treat!

those were the first days it came in the markets there in my city....we laughed so much! :)

I enjoyed both the series, Masago and Zhanna....infact i missed the crayon perspective in the last one when i read it yesterday :)
