Renga - A Man Who Married A Vixen - Poem by Don Haney

a royal rider
high on horse-
a love hunt

a girl of charm
with a wink-
a man enticed

in search for a man
in search of a wife
married all too soon

mother bore a son
bitch bore a pup
the dog is who?

day by day
scared pup
bearing teeth

begged of husband
kill the pup-
no decision

mortar cabin snacks
growl of pursuit
fear formed vixen

a husbands love
open invitation
to a vixen

then on named
come love sleep

in a skirt
color of dawn—

with a heavy heart
a poem written
everyday sung

    Thank You. I have been Longing To Read a Renga. No One Writes these anymore.
    They All Stick With Haiku's. No Matter what anyone says, Writing a haiku takes more poetry than the longest Verse. And A Renga Is Infinitly Harder. But they are So Beautiful to Read. As is Yours. Thank you Once Again.
