sleet on the skylight
I open a present of moon poems

That first line really makes this poem.

It's a beautiful line, and wonderful to read out loud.

I do wonder if this could be made into a two line haiku to overcome the visual inbalance?

Thanks, Alan. Good thinking, Batman. Happy new Year to you and Karen down in snowed-in B-o-A! Hope the renga is long enough to go round the world a few times now. :-)

Hi Matthew!

The 'Super Renga' (working title) has been so successful we have around three times the number of verses! ;-)

Both local people in the B&NES and Somerset libraries have been involved, as well people throughout the U.K. and Africa and the West.

It will be a unique project with people new to haiku and renku, and experienced haiku writers and renku poets submitting work.

all my best,

Alan
