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

when sailing is blind...


Eastern Lighthouse at McCrae on the Mornington Peninsula was built in England in 1874
and transported to Australia.
It guides mariners through the South Channel on the eastern side of Port Phillip Bay.


when sailing is blind
when seas are blackened with night
trust in lighthouse rays

Carpe Diem - Lighthouse of Alexandria
