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

Strangers


Westernport Festival is an annual festival celebrating the community of Hastings on Westernport Bay.
Here is the navy band from nearby HMAS Cerberus in the recent 2013 street parade, a major part of the activities.


Strangers on parade
I may not know their faces
But I love their song

Maybe to love a song is more important than to know a face?

I love marching bands...I give them so much credit for dressing up, marching miles, and playing such uplifting tunes....

People around the world connect through music. A shared love of music (or words) means we an never be total strangers methinks.

and not to mention the heat from the sun as they go through the parade. and yet, they're able to bring cheer through their music at the Festival.

Same here, there's something about parades that really excites us! It's like bringing out the children in us! Thanks for joining Wednesday Whites, Gemma!

Parades remind me of when I was a little girl back in the Philippines. Everytime we hear the drum playing we would hurry our walk to the side walk and watch the parade. It was fun! Lovely white uniforms. :)
