    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
