Four poets wanting to write a rengay penned a renray, so named for Ray French.

A renray by Ray French, Terri French, Susan Nelson Myers, and Curtis Dunlap (poems appearing in the same order).

Ephemera

updraft
mid-summer cloudburst
I re-light my cigar

smokescreens
the wind changes direction

ephemera--
this day's remains
a red stain

power outage
thirteen birthday candles

waxing in time
our love

cricket song
a flame burns low
in the hurricane lamp

on a moth's wing
a tale

Perseids--
an all night rain
so say my bones

And the video:

Love the renray, and Terri reading it in English and Susan in Spanish.

Say hi to the crickets for me. ;-)

Thanks for sending the link, Curtis.
This collaboration is outstanding! Love the Spanish translation too.
I like the whole idea of the renray.
Very cool!
