The essence of Renga (連歌) is in the idea of “change,” described as “newness” and “refraining from stepping back.” The fun is in the change, the new, the different, and the interesting verses of others.
It starts with a 5-7-5 sound units by one of us (yours truly), followed by the second verse of 7-7 sound units, and then by the third verse of 5-7-5 sound units. The next verse will be 7-7 sound units, and this pattern is repeated until the desired length is achieved. Each of you, please copy and paste my stanza and add your two lines under it.
I warmly invite everyone to participate in this Japanese “Mosha’ereh” as a way of both celebrating Nowruz and being mindful of the Japanese people’s present situation.
