Renhai Reflections 184: On the Loose

On the Loose

A Renhai by Vaughn Seward (Solo)

Poplar fuzz
fills the sky... drifting
on the ground.

Cherry petals face the wind —
the garden path grows pinker.

Open pickup —
pieces of carpet fly out
on the road.

plugs with ice /vs

A Renhai by Gillena Cox (gc) & Vaughn Seward (vs)

the old shopkeeper
bagging a purchase; he greets
a new customer /gc

between the calls of a finch /vs
the street-sweeper sneezes, dawn /gc

the haunting echo
of a hidden distant loon...
I pass our lunch pack /vs
