2036

Kim Russell over at Imaginary Garden With Real Toads has prompted us to Condense a Poem, the poem she has chosen is Pablo Neruda's 'Sweetness, always'
When i read the poem, i took from it the motifs of: writing, distance, places and appeal to the sense of taste and used them to go back in time and then come forward with today's haibun 'RENHAI RENDEZVOUS'
Process Note: Adhering to Classical Haibun which is always written in the present tense.


[that's us at the mall - a 2015 photo]

RENHAI RENDEZVOUS
My poet friend from Canada, the one who has created the form rehnai, comes to Trinidad, its year 2015. He is here to attend the wedding of a relative. We agree to meet at West Mall to sit and write a renhai together, What fun! my first time meeting him in person. A little more of this rendezvous here

sweet vanilla chai -
feed me your renhai verses
spoken in low tones

Thinking of what Magical said in her comment we do tend to devour poetry and even enjoy the taste of it, then a sad piece might even make us choke back sobs!
