Renhai Reflections 185: Step Forward

Step Forward

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

rainflies shedding wings —
at the slightest touch they move
on to the next stage. /gc

mosquitoes sing at sunset /gc
pounding rain hits the tin roof /vs

windshield wiper blades —
a bit of each bug set free
in each swipe's quick pass /vs

Sorry to say it that clear: the pair "wings/blades" gives me a very hard poetic kick. Very fine - and somehow just in the middle of William S. Burroughs' room.

Best wishes

Thanks all!

I really giggled at the last verse.
Just made a trip - 3300 plus miles -- and we picked up a lot of bugs on the windshield. As we crossed the border from Idaho into Oregon, we hit a rain burst. I watched that "bit of bug" action just as you describe.
