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

Our back verandah, with all its side branches and viewing deck, is almost gone.
The wood was just getting too rotten and unsafe.
Rather than repair, our landlord chose to remove it.
So now we are waiting for the new one to emerge.

when old worlds are stripped
fortitude clasps next beauty
close to the spirit

See how many are better off than you are, but consider how many are worse.
- This will hurt me

This seems not so much about decks and more a metaphor. At least in my life of changes. Very nice. Alice
