Renhai Reflections 147: Stepping Back

Stepping Back

A Renhai by Vaughn Seward (vs) & Dr. Vidur Jyoti (vj)

A waning crescent
in the long dim corridor —
shuffling footfalls. /vj

Barber's shop window — /vs
a glance back in time. /vj

Shoe-shiner's chair —
on the tip of my shoe,
the overhead light. /vs

Great accustic sceneries in the first (c) and the third verse (a/b). The whole set: delightful, indeed.

Best wishes

I simply love the crescent moon...and it keeps showing up in so many poets' work tonight. Makes me smile! :) Lovely set.

I'm really enjoying the Renhai. I will have to find someone to practice with.

I enjoy how the poems branch in two images bound together so simply.

Masago said...

Thank you all!

Andrew, all is well but very busy with many things. Thanks.
