(a renga)

chestnuts, conkers – trees
horse around with nature does
the leaf-miner moth

call the reserves – little birds
cyanistes caeruleus

blue and yellow clad
lass and lad needs to consume
irritant insect

Process notes: The Koser Samurai almost had me stumped with this article -but I spent about an hour doing some research and learning quite a bit about the Chickadee relative from across the pond…as well as the differences of the trees. The syllable count might be slightly off for cyanistes caeruleus, but I couldn’t find how to pronounce it. And it basically translates to very, very blue bird. Cyan being blue and caeruleus means darkblue.

a renga:

iridescent teal
shimmy shine bluish-green of
peacock, hummingbird
.
reflecting light or dancing
in natural shadow play
.
tail or breast feather
regal, priceless, breathtaking
teal, iridescent

renga:

dragonfly – too big
jenny wren too small – who flies?
my first hummingbird!

first host the butterfly bush
a few dances with the pine

she is gone again
a chance sighting brings smiles
as the sun rises

renga:
red tailed hawk hunted
that which sought the seeds, from the
front maple feeder –

at the same morning hour
I chose to refill the tube

we each caught sight of
a different predator –
with grace the bird flew
