Sculptured Bamboo


Sculptured Bamboo

a few days to new moon sculptured bamboo for the festival of lights/gc
past midnight the sounds of our steps bounce off the buildings/mr
the girl with saddle shoes and braids gets tensies school playground /lmp
by the tennis court a waiting tray of cool drinks and refreshments/ mlm
noonday sun a stone temple seems to sway in the waves of heat /sm
winter clouds the plane's shadow travels up its wing / kr
awake the heaven's river flows from thought to thought! / kr

(A Stellarenga is a seven-link poem containing only one-liners. The first and last links mention a cosmic body, e.g., a planet, a star or one of the luminaries. Renga style linkage means that each link stands separately yet relates to the preceding and following ku either by theme, wordplay, or twist of idea. A line-space is generally placed between each ku; a stellarenga is really a set of poems. As in all renga poems a straight or tell-all narrative should be avoided. A Stellarenga can be done solo or partnered.The Stellarenga was created by Alexis K. Rotella in March 1997)
