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

Rosemary


Sea mist envelops London Bridge Ocean Beach at Portsea on the Mornington Peninsula


when sea mists drift in
do you yearn for distant lands
lady rosemary


NOTE
Rosemary is from a combination of 2 Latin words
(ros = dew + marinus = sea) which together mean dew of the sea.
Rosemary is a plant native to the seaside regions of the Mediterranean and North Africa.

Ah you have captured the true nature of the rosemary plant ....finicky unless the gardener provides those temperate Mediterranean breezes! Well done :)
