Call out for a renku

Hey all,

It's been a long time since we did a renku, and having talked with a Columbia grad student who brought up the need for scholars to try producing the poetry they research, I've gotten in the mood to do another renku. I definitely want an odd number of participants (either 3 or 5) so that there's alternation between composing leading lines and capping lines. So who's up for this?

I understand something about haiku as it has to have a certain rythym, a certain number of lines, and be cryptic (probably wrong but my best guess!)...but what is a renku? I guess its another form of japanese poetry, but how does it differ from haiku poetry?

Just asking

A renku is a form of linked verse, the poetic form between waka and haiku. Renku is its truest form is actually made by linking 7 character Chinese couplets together(lienju in Chinese) but the Japanese developed an alternate form that involves alternating between units with 5-7-5 and units of 7-7, with the 7-7 being alternately written in Japanese and Chinese called wakan renku. Following that model, Phlux and I created an eikan renku, with Phlux writing haiku in English and me composing Chinese couplets. So that's an abridged explanation of what a renku is and what I'd like to do again.
