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

Red




In my mind's red room
Where the dollars have no wealth
Rich passions cavort

How wonderful to visit the red room of one's mind! And have lots of cavorting too!

"Rich passions cavort" - now that's a classic line - leaves a LOT to the imagination

Love the sign. The way the words are entwined with the frame is so neat. Plus the sign is casting small shadows at the bottom....beautiful.
