Renga 11 "Dedication"

Renga 11 “Dedications”

For the ones I loved
who have stood by me through time
I send my prayers
May your life be blessed, my dear
now until the end of time

I love you always
Spiritually complete
I shall need no more
I held you for many years
I shall hold you beyond time

You are my sunshine
brightening my life with love
when I need it most
like the north star you guide me
in darkest hours of life

Writing poems with friends
Bring joy to community
Of poets from around the world
Long time friends a precious rose
New ones are just as priceless

No tears shed my dear
Though I miss you more each day
We will meet again
There is a place I know of
We shall be there in true love

Give more receive less
love unconditionally
till the course runs out
however tough the terrain
the river song keeps rhyming

Thanks all you poets
sharing haiku and senyru
my renga workshop
there is no home like Neo
to learn and write Jap poetry.

A hand full thank you
my friends at Neopoet
you are amazing
special one to Barbara
for the endless fun she shares.


Editing stage: 


I think you mentioned somewhere that you had studied Bill somewhere. Macbeth was your favorite, was it not?
My question.
Most scholars seem to agree that Shakespeare's Othello is the most flawless play written in the English language.
No flaws. This means no extra storyline, just the one. No confusion in repeated character styles.
And the one in your piece that told me the work was important to you.
There are virtually no flaws. No typographical errors, no misspellings. Everything is exactly as you intended it to be and like it or not it is what you actually wrote.
I happen to like it very much and consider it the best piece of poetry I've ever read by you.

W. H. Snow

A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds. Percy Bysshe Shelley

This piece is collaborately written by the participant. I guess I forgot to write the names at the bottom. Very important to me. And wow best you ever read. I know the authors in the piece should be proud of themselves.

I been under the weather for a while but I do my best to be on here. But must slip away from time to time. This is the shortest renga on here but Length is not important. So if everybody has shared their dedication, I will be closing this WS. And starting Ian WS. Thanks for participating.
