    As light as lace; as delicate as a dragonfly's wings; as gentle as a ripple caused by a mild breeze yet aesthetically enrapturing. This is something to be felt in a realm of sensation which goes beyond words. My hat off to you.

    Take care

    Ten simple words, carrying such power, and mind-muse....Allie, this has to be one of the better senyru's i've read on this site...*APPLAUDING*.....*NOW, STANDING & APPLAUDING, WITH MORE RAPID CLAMOR* [Yes, it's time for your curtsy]
    Tomorrow, would you believe, i will have been on/off/on/offf & on yhis site for 2 years....April 6th,2006....i posted the initial draft of 'While You Were Asleep''!

    Awww, Jerry said it first! The power of senryu comes from ordering words with infinite possibility; if chosen well they may be re-ordered without losing impact. This is one of those gems. Rgds, Ivan (Report) Reply
