near the spirits lay easy
across a splendid space


(a reminder; every other poem is supposed to be 2 lines of approx 7 syllibles and alternating with the 5/7/5 syllible ones.)

For those who don't know what or how to renga:



WHAT IS A RENGA?
A RENGA is a group of HAIKU-LIKE verses linked in any one of several special ways. It is usually written by two or more poets who take turns writing the verses.

In classical RENGA, 3-line and 2-line verses are alternated, beginning with a 3-line verse (a hokku, usually approximating 5-7-5 syllables) resembling haiku. A second poet composes the following verse (2 lines approximating 7-7), linking it by one of several methods (not too obviously, please) with the first. The next verse (of 3 lines), composed by the first poet (in a 2-person renga) or by another (in renga written by more than 2 poets), links with the second but not with the first.

Beginning capitals and ending punctuation are usually avoided. These patterns continue throughout the renga, each verse linking somehow with the verse preceding it, but with no others. Each verse may launch us in a new direction, providing the next poet with a new puzzle to solve. Once a significant noun, verb, adjective or adverb occurs, it is usually not used in another verse (tho a witty switch of meaning or context might be acceptable in adjacent links). This technique keeps a renga continually twisting and turning, challenging both poet and reader.
The result is a constantly changing mosaic which discourages development of a logical, sequential narrative. The pleasures derived from continual surprise, striking imagery and delightfully sudden (and often witty) insights can be captivating. That is one of the chief delights of renga.
Short version of above; it's an ongoing poem alternating between 3 line verse and 2 line verse. The three line is composed of 5-7-5 syllables and the 2 line is composed of 7-7 syllables. You link them by using a word from the verse preceding yours, try not to use the same link as the previous poster.

Below is a series of renga lines written between the original poster and myself. She did the 3 line ones, me the 2 line ones. On the other board, this game is over 20 pages long with several players.

seeking self to dine
perpetually needy
appetite unrest

Of love and lust, appetites
burst forth the spring and blooms

unrelenting lust
a throbbing roller coaster
perilous but fun

In the funhouse mirror reflections
expresses the soul and the fate

lifelike parody
unending comedic error
funhouse existence

Absurdities unending
the great joys of life twinkle

a whimsical life
joy and sorrow intertwine
live until you die

Fuller and fuller still
life beakons and cajoles

sun softly rising
casting shadows to the wind
beakons a new day

I thought I'd start this up again.
