Renhai Reflections 165: A Renhai, Step by Step: Another verse
A Renhai, Step by Step: Another verse by Vaughn Seward (Solo)
A snow storm's layer of white velvet — creek bed.
Possible links: -Snow, storm, whiteness. -Layering, flatness. -Velvet, type of fabric. -Body of water, aquatic (frozen). -Channel, line. -Bed, peacefulness.
From this list I am impressed by the idea of the snow storm and the frozen creek lying silently, perhaps not so warmly, under the pure untouched, newly fallen blanket of snow. In a flash of inspiration this verse emerges:
Howling north wind — I snuggle a bit deeper under the sheets.
The links are therefore: -Covered, sheltered. -Snow storm / North wind. -Cloth, material (Velvet / Sheets). -Bed.
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'.
