Colleen said : “If you want to be creative and feel up to an additional challenge, respond to my renga with your own two, seven-syllable lines. A renga is a cooperative poem, written by two or more poets.”

Colleen has written the hokku (haiku portion in 5/7/5). Our response to her hokku is the wakiku: two seven-syllable lines that connect with the interaction between the different links.

Remember,our renga stanza will link and shift. It will NOT tell a sequential story. Review the renga on the cheatsheet link on her page to refresh your memory.

Here is Colleen’s hokku: followed by my Waikiki.

hazy reflectionsโ€”
crows gather to remember
the gifts of summer.

Seasons whisper to the deer.
Gently as they ride with crows
