A Renga of Toads

Grace O'Malley over at Imaginary Gardens has urged us to create a renga poem.

The renga is a long Japanese poem, a series of very short verses in an alternating pattern, built by the group. There are links and references scattered within the greater poem, and each verse is related without being repetitive, writes Grace.

I am the fifth person and here is what I've written:


her graceful waves in
a risque spring ballet, legs
kick the silver sky
