A Hill of Streams Renga, (diptych), 2005

 

This diptych, A Hill of Streams Renga, was composed by Alec Finlay with Alexander Maris. Renga is a 1,000-year-old Japanese form of shared writing, a bit like a chain of linked haiku. Finlay writes 'It describes a walk from the head of the glen down by way of each confluence. It describes some of the things I saw and some of my responses. Because a renga is a linked verse and involves a number of voices, it is a perfect poetical analogy for the way the burns flow into the river.'

 

This renga is the first to be written so that it flows in two directions: it first follows Dalwhat Water (Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland) downstream, and has then been recomposed so that it turns back on itself, flowing from Craigenbeast in the glen back towards the source on the hill.
