ik 189
(American renga)
head on!

marvel at insects
dragonfly on the screen of
the porch door, drying

allowing you to take a
photo of it’s long body

so in a close up
Little Miss could see
yellow sunglasses

Note: when I enlarged the photo within the camera window –
the dragonflies yellow line on it’s head did look like it was wearing
sun-specks! This may have been our visitor:

  1. 😀 Awesome! What a wonderful and delightful visitor – and I’m so glad Little Miss was enthralled. Lovely creatures dragonflies. Make me so happy and delirious with watching.

    Great imagery in your piece here – love the “sun specs” – totally awesome!

  2. enjoyed your American renga – haven’t tried that form for years… Yes! Dragonflies do wear sun glasses, don’t they? But you can’t see it until you enlarge the photo – so difficult to take pictures of them too, isn’t it? Lovely phrasing and clear images elicited by your words…

    • I’m not sure technically if I am correct in saying American haiku, tanka or renga. It was just the way I was taught and not as others have attempted to perhaps correct or enlighten me to the Japanese form.

      Still …I like writing that/this way so that should count for something 😉
