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

Wolf Moon




Midsummer moonlight
Like a heart beat on night winds
A perfect round pearl

And the wolf moon calls
Save your soul from frozen lands
Unchain your music


NOTE
The January full moon is a midsummer moon in Australia

I stupidly am always surprised every time someone from australia reminds me they are in summer when i am cold and frozen here in NY, as if i have forgotten each time i don't live at the centerof the universe! Love your hailku this week!

A perfect round pearl
And the wolf moon calls
Unchain your music

It appears to be a rounding up of friends upon a signal and off to paint the town red. That's how I read it Gemma! Nice thoughts!

The likeness between the moon and a pearl is just brilliant :-(

Like a heart beat on night winds... this line is a pearl itself! Evocative and a touch mysterious.
