Silence is Safe

 

oh this silence …
boulders filled
by cikadans squeaks   ©Basho


a squirrel sneaks away
up into and around the trunk

it’s getting darker
volume turned up
like million violins

pulling the covers upp
to soften sound for ears

after a sigh
acorn fell on forehead
that squirrel

another acorn fell
somebody is still working

in the sky
a star fell too
my wish

the silence is safe
a dream came true


I don’t know if I have succeeded in my first ‘Soliloquy No Renga’ (a Renga written by one poet) – this monologue with ‘hokku’ and ‘ageku’.
Is it a 8-stanza renga?
