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

2015 Haiku - Gemma's MP Daily


Saturday May 23
sleepy colours
wintering their
summer spirit

Friday May 22
sharing secret journeys
keel by keel

Sunday May 17
sands of silence
time moves
on slippered feet

Monday April 13
golden pool of leaves
swan song

Saturday April 11
lady of the leaves
dreaming of worlds with
new flowers

Friday April 10
little wave peaks
creep gingerly to
final sands

Thursday April 9
a family
needs active

Tuesday April 7
beach umbrellas
stepping stones for
lurking heat

Thursday April 2
on sea salts
wild goats


Friday March 27
glowing gold
icing the grey
with warmth

Wednesday March 25
autumn sea mist
filters memories of

Sunday March 22
clusters of colour
breaking the greys
thin smiles in shadows

Monday March 16
golden leaves
dazzle the trees
summer weeps

Sunday March 8
a lone pot
shadowy threads
some melancholy


Wednesday February 25
dull light
sleepy reflections
water shuffle

Saturday February 21
if waters could sing
rough waters must tune to
funky jazz

Friday February 20
clear blue skies
gentle seas
surf rescue idle

Thursday February 19
your new house
we're in it together
sign here

Wednesday February 18
close to the water
my eyes tell me
I'm cooler

Sunday February 15
flotsam and jetsam
the bits that baggage
a summer beach

Sunday February 8
mind games
moves within moves

Tuesday February 3
just a little soul
plodding along quietly
with his colours


Wednesday January 28
in stillness
greened with beauty
there is peace

Tuesday January 27
ready for a ride
when turning in circles is
fun in progress

Saturday January 24
when summer light rains
waters gleam with
sunny wonder

Friday January 23
little bits of white
pockets of
summer moods

Sunday January 11
angled shadows
framing the picture

Saturday January 3
beneath summer skies
sands dotted with
jostling colour
