Waiting for the much vaunted snow yesterday – really a few swirling flakes which disappeared like snow in harvest as the rain set in – I thought of the Japanese idea of Renga, collaborative poetry with a lot of discipline. Being a lone poet and not having much poetic discipline I decided to have a go anyway, here is my attempt –
5/7/5 7/7

Waiting for snow storm
bright sky heralds laden clouds
moon seeing all weeps

flurries start then blizzard swirls
all is still except snowflakes

Enjoy the winter if you can, the earth is just sleeping, soon she will awake and spring will work her magic once more, we will be patient.

Very best wishes – Denny Bradbury
