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

2026



The grackle is a common place blackbird, i find them quite charming and elegant with their long extravagant tails. They skip on my wall, and swoop down when the lawn grass is freshly cut. Maybe they like the scent of cut grass. On the wall they are brave and curious at the same time. I never tire of looking at them. I talk to them sometimes, they draw nearer when they hear my voice. They whistle outside my closed window. I peek at them behind the closed panes.

a moon ripened -
in the eye of a grackle
a stare defiant
