summer solstice
a train gathers speed
and dandelion snow
          ~Gael

snow-capped ledge
the tidewash
of the windswept sea
          ~cat

seaborne
memory of prawn curry
aboard a minesweeper
          ~Alan

minesweeper -
the fishermen haul
a heavy catch
          ~Gael

catch-
the old dog twitches
in his sleep
          ~Bea

sleep lab
the more they try to make it
feel like home . . .
          ~cat

home run
half the bat follows
the ball
          ~Don

ball four
shouts the Little League ump
parents start fighting
           ~Al

fighting the urge
to see him again . . .
this dusty road
          ~cat       

road trip
a shanty motel
on the edge of town
          ~Don

town pier
seiners rocking
under a mackerel sky

Sky TV
a cable is removed
in the big house

house warming –
the glow of everyone's
cheeks

perhaps it might be easier as Cat did at the beginning to just put the previous linking verse ? Saving space  ;D

Helo, Gael and other haiku train passengers,

It might be useful to put the previous two.  I suggest that because it's what's being done in the renga I'm participating in, and it does give a little bit more of what's gone before, so the additions don't have the same imagery too close together.

Hello,

Well, I'm glad "tree tops" is two words here instead of one!
