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

Jasmine




When I burn the oil
I touch the jasmine of youth
Brief scents of old loves

Haiku Heights ~ April Heights Haiku Month ~ Jasmine
