Cool. We'll post one, the others
are in the inbox, and wait and see who can participate for a shorter renku.
'toque is out of town this week,
and I think maybe coyote is on the prowl or an archeological event. (Digging up bones.) John and I disagree politically, though we both like people in general regardless of their origin, and Robin, well, you know Robin.

Actually, I'm sentimental when it comes to corn-
I was born in No. Kansas City, MO,
and when I was little my Dad and I would make the drive from there to Minnesota to visit my Grandmother.
Dad was a single parent.
Early on, before the Interstate was built, we'd roll up Highway 169, which meandered through rural farmfields and small, picturesque towns alike.
That's where I learned the expression, "knee high by the 4th of July'.
Once in a while we took a train, sleeper cars, even, with a car that had a restaurant. Massive Idaho potatoes and corn on the cob!
Whichever mode of travel, it's a grand way to see a country.

Karin- what a great introduction poem! I will look forward to writing some renku with you in the future. Have fun! I love these get togethers!

It may be just the three of us for now. Would you like to attempt a short 12 stanza "junicho" renku or postpone 'til after our green weekend?
