withered birch
hidden amidst green pine
mistaken for ghosts

The authors are assembling now.
As per our "tradition" we post
an introductory verse preceding
our renku.

This occurred while driving to work on a converted cabin along the St. Croix river late last fall.
The area is beautiful; glacial
formations of topography, wild and strewn with pine.
I caught a glimpse of the birch in the autumn light and first mistook it for smoke. I mean I was fooled!
And then just as mysteriously as it appeared, it was gone.

wisp of smoke-
a painted warrior
looking at me
