A Stellarenga is a seven-link poem containing only one-liners.
The first and last links mention a cosmic body, e.g., a
planet, a star or one of the luminaries. Renga style linkage
means that each link stands separately yet relates to the
preceding and following ku either by theme, wordplay, or twist
of idea. A line-space is generally placed between each
ku; a stellarenga is really a set of poems. As in all
renga poems a straight or tell-all narrative should be
avoided. A Stellarenga can be done solo or partnered. The
Stellarenga was created by Alexis K. Rotella in March 1997
while she was recuperating from the flu.
