    Hurricane? ! I am glad we were let down on that one! I like your ambiguous Senryu that allows us to fill in the blanks... (Report) Reply

    I think that is my goal for my Haiku. Thanks, Pamela

    All that tension and build up for that awaited day and then a deep sigh of relaxation. Beautiful. (Report) Reply

    Seems like when a child is looking forward to Christmas, Easter, Halloween or a special event, anticipation growing by leaps and bounds, then the day arrives, is filled with family, friends and cheer! That evening, looking around at all the decorations and special gifts and treats, wishing it wasn't over and hoping it would come again soon. Thought provoking, adding to my curiosity. What is Senryu? RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    A senryu follows the same guidelines as a haiku but does not deal with nature. I waited a long time for my humor book to come out, and on the day of its release (and subsequently) it just turned out to be another day.: -)
    Thanks, RoseAnn
