Renku12 – First chill night


This week's renku poem is an extract from A Cup of Snow, written by Hortensia Anderson, John E. Carley, Alan Summers, Carole MacRury and Michael Dylan Welch.

"A Cup of Snow, written by e-mail in the first months of 2008, is one of the earliest examples of the rokku form in English. The rokku is a mold-breaking type of renku sequence originated in the early years of this century by the Japanese poet and critic Haku Asanuma."
