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 Greyscale


Sunday April 12
capsule of water
enough to feed
thirsty dreams

Saturday April 11
threading the clouds
with tadpole lines
scattered wings

Friday April 10
when autumn falls
clouds whisper

Thursday April 9
the bane of
fresh thoughts

Wednesday April 8
small sailor
but master of
grumpy waters

Tuesday April 7
transient colours
summer is passing

Sunday April 5
in autumn
long shadows frame the golds

Saturday April 4
beach living
a great way to work on

Friday April 3
autumn morning
veiled forms
whimper of colour

Thursday April 2
even though
I don't know your history
I feel your wings

Wednesday April 1
wind-filled sails
loving the drive of
sea breezes


Tuesday March 31
vibrant autumn reds
signs of imminent
winter blues

Friday March 27
jumble of clouds
stretched and whirled

Thursday March 26
a slice of pizza
drizzled with flavour
a slice of summer

Saturday March 21
in her music
she feels the spirit of
her dialogue

Wednesday March 18
hustling a water finale
the last dance

Saturday March 14
there are times
when security
must be freed

Sunday March 8
some patchy sunlight
some errant shadows
a stray twig

Wednesday March 4
beach sands
pitched with the last songs
of summer feet


Saturday February 28
whimsical breath

Friday February 27
fanciful cloud bubbles
dream fragments

Tuesday February 24
floral flames
firing the greens
visual heat

Monday February 23
buzzing around
muddling all sense of

Sunday February 22
sands of morning
shapes of darkness

Thursday February 19
protecting wildlife
can be a means of
protecting ourselves

Friday February 13
dabbling low
clouds testing
the waters

Friday February 6
hugging the pier
white icing
of summer

Sunday February 1
shadow links
reflect on
guarded space


Tuesday January 27
little dancer
do you hear your own
special music

Friday January 16
sky flicked with white cloud
beach colours are growing
the heat is rising

Wednesday January 14
diving silently
into the sky

Thursday January 1
it's a new year
time to value
