Watch her create magic, there!
in front of your eyes

Such a perfect subject for this ancient poetic form. And penned with great authority too. (Can't believe this is your first Senryu!) Your poem reminds me of Pooh and his Pooh-sticks. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Pure enchantment. How well you understand
the world of a child.
This is simply beautiful. A child can create magic in their imagination. My Mother made my sister a fairy dress and when she got the wand, she said it would not work! My Mother said that it would in her imagination. An excellent first Senryu Sonya.
A wonderful first senryu - so few words, so many magical images. S :)
