Anyone is welcome to join in this creative adventure! I will be marking the kick off of this poetry adventure then join in. When? February 21st is our Kickoff day. Please visit The Idiotic and Feeble Mindeed Poets Page and join in the fun. This is our chance to link us across the planet.
WHAT? There are many ways of doing a RENGA. Since it was through the RENGA that the haiku emerged, ours should be haiku in flavor but without the anxieties of form. There are some who have experience in RENGA and may want to work within a form-that’s ok. But an intuitive 3 line -2 line – 3 line etc is our approach.
Message from the Creator of The Idiotic and Feeble minded poets, Vincent Zepp:
HOW? The poem will be written in the “say something” field on THE IDIOTIC AND FEEBLE MINDED POETS FACE BOOK PAGE with everyone having an opportunity to contribute. The poem has to be copy and pasted into the field each time in order to add the next link -thus eliminating the previous entry. We ok so far? If you can’t copy and paste message me and I’ll do it for you. If you can’t message me email me at firstname.lastname@example.org The last step would be to post your link in the comments so we know who wrote it. It is quite simple. If Facebook wasn’t so clumsy I’m sure there’d be a better approach.
WHY? There’s no doubt that THE IDIOTIC AND FEEBLE MINDED POETS is the most unique literary page on Facebook. That’s because of the poets and poetry. The RENGA is a chance to link us across the planet. We don’t have the opportunity to sit down for drinks and dinner and readings-this as close as we can get for the time being.
THANKS! We thank you for what will be a creative fun adventure. Feel free to contact us if we can be of help in any way.

Death kissed you in November by Sofia Kioroglou
Death kissed you in November
Death kissed you in November
and I am a complete mess inside!
I am suffocating and gasp for some air
but my oxygen mask has now gone to heaven.
