With Kate pioneering with a verse on “mountains” yesterday, today’s renju, Janet Dowling, could have continue on the theme of mountains, or gone for a verse on summer, winter, travel, dwellings or shores.
Bitten by the pioneering bug, Janet went for a 7-7 on travel . This is what she came up with :
Scattered far beyond the stars :
traverse the sun and restored
Janet says :”I provide continuity by moving from Kate’s “peaks” to “beyond the stars” ~ I create a sense of getting higher. The change in direction is a shift in theme to travel (by going out to the stars/sun and back again). My kigo word is “traverse”.”
Well, it’s rather an oblique reference to travel, so the verse has been allowed. And, the big news is that we are already at the end of Page Two. Because our renga poem is relatively short, this means that tomorrow’s verse has to be an autumn verse and that the Moon Rule must be invoked.

I am just going outside and may be some time.
