On the Porch – Tan Renga – June 24, 2015

on the porch
in my shorts;
auto lights in the rain

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #90, Allen Ginsberg’s “on the porch”

More haiku by Allen Ginsberg:

Looking over my shoulder
my behind was covered
with cherry blossoms.

I didn’t know the names
of the flowers—now
my garden is gone.

I slapped the mosquito
and missed.
What made me do that?

Allen Ginsberg inspired by Basho:

a mosquito
aiming noisily –
the sound of one hand

A frog floating
in the drugstore jar:
summer rain on gray pavements.

On the porch
in my shorts;
auto lights in the rain.

Another year
has past—the world
is no different.

The first thing I looked for
in my old garden was
The Cherry Tree.

Our host’s renga:

on the porch
in my shorts;
auto lights in the rain
                            (Allen Ginsberg)
after a lonely … hot day
lips on mine … together again
              (Chèvrefeuille)

in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
