      I added Sabine's previous contribution to your to display the couplet to keep the thread consistent.

      Thank you. I apologize for that oversight. (I probably should have said goodnight to my laptop earlier than I did.)

                    I’ll leave it as is since the ku are good but there was a hiccup here.

                    Ku should alternate between 3 and 2 line verses, and only posts made on the main thread (white background) count as entries to the renga.

                    Comments on individual ku in the grey boxes aren’t part of the renga that’s more a space for praising individual verses or doing unofficial responses that don’t become part of the chain. Try to keep it regular as it could get confusing fast if people start deviating from the format.
                    Thanks!

                      Geoff, your ku was great there’s no reason to stop posting just letting you know how this works it’s a renga thing and explained in the first post of the thread.
