By now, you probably know all about continuity rules, right? And you’ve probably already realised that today’s 7-7 just had to be about spring – and that today’s renju, Cara Wilde was squashed right into a renga corner!
This is what she came up with :
Skylarks dancing, air delights :
hidden desires erupting
Cara says : ” The season word is skylark – it’s a Japanese classic kigo for spring! Continuity is demonstrated by continuing the anticipation and potential of the last stanza, and crescendoing into celebration of new life in spring. The last line is the result of building anticipation : new life being called to grow from within the Earth.”
So, with three consecutive verses on the theme of spring now complete, the renga game now opens up again!
