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

Shimmer


Sunlight flickering on waters at Rosebud beach, Port Phillip Bay


Shimmer of sunlight
Like words for our new music
Living a new dance

This photo and your words reminded me of a time when my then four year old wanted to know why we didn't go out into the water to "get all those diamonds." Love the music in your words!

The sun adds a glow on each small wave, leaving a lot of shimmering currents dancing on the water. A choreography of choppy dance steps, Nice!

It always renews me--the sun and its dance, as if a newly worded song.
