Newtown Renga

in the wake(s)
of Newtown
                                          Ginny Parkum

in Newtown storm's wake,
horizon obscured,
where's the path?
                                           Alfred Bloom

in the wake of a sinking boat
a wave moves on
gathering emptiness
                                            Brooke Wiley

in enveloping emptiness,
there is neither boat nor wave
what wakes?

                                             Alfred Bloom

the world of the wave
is the world of the wave
and yet, and yet...

                                             Brooke Wiley
