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

Lovely poem! But what is renhai - how to write?

Stunning!!! I always love your work ... and your smile.

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!
