Renga with Jane – Moonlight Moving

Carpe Diem #1817 Renga With … Jane Reichhold … Moonlight Moving

moonlight moving
with the gate as the servant girl
takes an evening

escaping reality
for an hours leave

morning fog
dreams not buried
deep enough

fantasies of passion
Add color to pale cheeks

Saturday rain
desire by a warm stove
for an affair

she giggles shyly
at the new delivery boy

spring sunshine
the strangeness of his perfectly
normal thumbnail

brief moments affection
spanning the years

waterfall
delicate forms
for a spirit

celebrating another
death day anniversary

kids laughing
in the neighbor’s house
the childless couple

smiling at lilting breeze
rocking and holding hands

Carpe Diem #1594 Cliffs … Renga With Jane Reichhold

giant waves
sea cliff rocks
summer sea secure

beach scattered with shells
painted by the sunrise

high tide
brings storm waves
to cliff dwellers

hunkering under the overhang
eating roasted pine nuts

after the storm
sandstone cliffs relax pebbles
into the beach

gathering adobe
repairing  structural damage

sea spray
the cliff laced
by crystal

gleaming in first light
shadows dance with glee

frozen cliffs
swept by lighthouse beams
soft in the dark

wind echoing sound of past
in long abandoned  dwellings

high tossed mists
warmed in morning sun
above winter cliffs

beauty not lost
with the passage of time
