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

More in the spirit of Masaoka Shiki...

lost feathers
make way for new wings
in new breezes

no peacocks
just humble creatures
seeking their flight

In the spirit of
Masaoka Shiki

the peacock
spreading out his tail
in the Spring breeze

The gentle suggestion of spring in the first was a nice surprise. I can relate to the second - as a humble creature seeking to write haiku!!! Thanks for sharing.
