- longer days/new neighbor (haiku, senryu)


longer days -
catching more
morning melodies

new neighbor
at the hedge
she cuts both sides

    Both excellent poems Ben and it is good to see a haiku and senryu side by side to note the difference of the forms. I can relate to the longer days as with daylight saving, we have heaps of time to catch those morning melodies. I will go for a look at moonset too and see what beams there! 10 Karin (Report) Reply
