A collaborative haiku — “Exoplanets”

Congrats, J.A. Grier!  Your 7-7 lines were picked by the judges from the submissions.  So here it is: the final haiku!

Exoplanets
by Christine Rueter and J.A. Grier

To the orrery,
we add more distant planets
too faint for our eyes.
This bright, braille wave invites
us to come – explore by touch.

The collaborative haiku guidelines (retained for posterity):

Renga is a form of collaborative haiku with a 5-7-5-7-7 syllable structure. A single writer initiates the poem with the first 5-7-5 stanza and welcomes other writers to provide the 7-7 stanza.

Anyone can submit the 7-7 lines! For the sake of all renga participants, please include your lines as comments to the collaborative haiku post so that others can see what has been submitted. I will “close” the renga to submissions on the date indicated with the collaborative haiku post.  I will have two independent judges pick their favorite from the submissions. The final renga will be published on this blog, and the submitter will be given co-credit with me in the by-line.

    known of but not introduced.
