Renhai Reflections 142: Settling Down

Settling Down

A Renhai by Vaughn Seward (vs) & Janice Seward (js)

Quiet playground —
an autumn breeze upon
the set of swings. /js

Between bicycle spokes, /vs
a scarlet maple leaf. /js

Caught in traffic —
switching stations to look
for better news. /vs

Vaughn, I wonder why my comments do not go through. My password is rejected each time. Perhaps, I forgot both my username and my password. :( It looks like I can post only as an anonymous. My Facebook is acting even worse. It simply froze. As I said at your renhai forum, I enjoyed your renhai written with your wife. I especially enjoyed the first and the second verses.

I shall be gone for a short trip to Alabama for a literarty conference. Zhanna

The last two lines are a mirror of our times. We blame the messenger ...

What I really do like in this renhai is the sound of it. The s in line 2/3 (as a pair), 4/5, and 7/8 desribe the noise of tv or radio, when nothing is broadcasted.

Good one!

Best wishes
