RENGA: United Lomo Poetry

Got the idea from lyocell’s blog and I think a poetry version would be equally fun!

Renga is a collaborative form of poetry which consists of at least two stanzas, usually more.

The rules are pretty much similar to lyocell’s blog. I’ll be posting the first two lines of the renga. For those who want to contribute, just post the text and image link in the comment box, and I’ll update it. The lines don’t really have to rhyme or be calculated. You can post as many lines as you want. Let’s make it modern and free verse.

Let the fun begin, lomo peeps!

They say dreaming is like flying
it defies the gravity of life and existence
They say life is like a plate of hot lumpia
you never know what is inside until you take a bite

Sometimes dreams dont have a happy end,
cause we wake up too early

5. IMAGE (kuryzu)

I went deep to pursue
fleeting glimpse of your memory
and try to reach your figure,
recover your graceful comfort

fond memories…
lady-in-waiting

8. IMAGE (eicalette)

As I walk through the wood, my shoe gets heavy.
Do I want to look?
What’s the difference when all’s said and done?

I find you
finding me

Contentment, cheerfulness, merriment, gaiety, joy, glee, delight,
good spirits, well-being, enjoyment, exuberance, happiness…
Living life right
gives you the best high

Why! why are you so nice?
You should have just left, turn your back on her,
but life is an experience and you’ve made your choice.
Now just see where it will take you.

We were given wings to fly
but some of us afraid to fall
We were given worlds to imagine
but some of us afraid to dream

Mum said girls really powerful,
Dad said girls really mystical,
But i think girls really trouble

mountain breathing
noon heat shimmers
cool from crevices

14. IMAGE (weedos)

Like the cold feeling in my heart
As she left me here
Hoping one day the door will open
To set my heart free
