Haiku + Senryu

Haiku is a seasonal, reverent celebration of a subject (nature or people) trying to make a feeling.
Senryu tends to have a victim and may be humorous or irreverant trying to make a point.
- paraphrased from Michael Dylan Welch's Graceguts

wild outdoor party
winter-logged guests are welcome
to stay inside

eerie winds moan
translucent mists blur
guarded party doors

bagel...




little sand snail
celebrates new summer with
a living bagel


NOTE
Sand snails lay eggs in kidney-shaped egg jellies.
If you hold one up to the light, you will see spots inside which are the tiny eggs.
This photo was taken at Rosebud beach.

They are both right opposite the beach.
