Haiku + Senryu

Haiku is a seasonal, reverent celebration of a subject (nature or people) trying to make a feeling.
Senryu tends to have a victim and may be humorous or irreverant trying to make a point.
- paraphrased from Michael Dylan Welch's Graceguts

Beyond the webbed grate
Yesterday's flames leap and burn
Now fickle embers

One ember burns bright
Like some wild scalding summer
Too hot for the soul
