[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
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'.
