    This looks familiar! Thank you for ‘prised’ You may have a leaky rowboat, but it appears that your vocabulary isn’t leaking out of your brain yet!

  2. Very nice. ‘leaky’ notwithstanding. 🙂

    But it will hold the moon, for sure. I like your tinkering.

    I like the idea of collecting stars. Almost like the people who put fireflies in a jar 🙂

    This flows so nicely and your choice of words was excellent. I like the imagery it evokes in my mind. Well done 🙂

    Triple treat for me! Of course I knew this was a tinkered verse from the renga (I haven’t lost THAT much gray matter!) I like the leaky boat better than the empty boat. I wonder, did you use the empty rowboat(in the renga) to echo the image of an open clam shell? Just curious.

  17. Lea says:

    I have a feeling… that all those stars in your leaking rowboat will float you onward… love the imagery Mark! Thank you!

  18. If you stay in the boat all night you may not see stars for too long…

  19. J says:

    probably a good thing — stars are not very kind up close 🙂
