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

Summer sand castle
Like building a summer dream
To last the winter

I was really referring to the sandcastles as a symbol of a dream of summer (hence the "like") through the cold winters! Of course, literally, a sandcastle lasts till the next wave. Of course, there is a touch of irony! O well!
