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

chilling absence of
blistering heat
magpie lifts a song

In my south east Australian world, we are in our 3rd day of heat wave conditions
where temperatures are more than 40 degrees centigrade.
Friday promises to be our 4th.
This magpie arrived on our verandah and sang and sang as the evening temperatures dropped.
He was here till it was quite dark.
