Happy Birthday Renku

For her birthday, Cara Holman invited visitors to help compose a birthday renku.  It was my first time participating in a renku, online or otherwise.  There are many participants and many wonderful parts to the renku (basically haiku/senryu and couplets).  If such a project prods your curiosity, please visit Prose Posies and enjoy the variety of summer inspired poetry.

About Yousei Hime

This is the journal of a poetic rabbit. Within the warren you'll find poetry, short stories, essays, art, book and movie reviews, and other odds and ends. If you happen to meet the fey princess, be courteous. This rabbit did and was forever changed.

      K,
      You know, sometimes something captures us–like a child wanting attention or a sunset or a song first heard–and we have to respond. Some prompts are like that. Glad you enjoyed the result. :D
