San Francisco International Rengay Competition, 2019

Rengay written with Jennifer Hambrick (in normal type) and Debbie Strange (in italics):


In the Key of Grey


hydro lines
the sixteenth notes
of grackles

morning
in the key of grey

the lullaby
of wind through grain
empty silo

high lonesome
a crush of midnight
shadows

barbed wire
the descant of coyotes

curving
into the distance
a train's lament

Third Place (tied)


Excerpted from the judge's comments:

...It was one of very few rengay with a double theme. And the music references are skillfully incorporated into each verse, all of which relate very nicely to one another. I found this rengay to be very aesthetically pleasing.

—Seren Fargo
