Wielding a Whip


wielding a whip

summer gales tie the elms

to a lush bed

    • Well, everyone else has been so senryu-ed up lately that I felt left out 😛

      And what the June gales have been doing to the trees here…

      • Well, we don’t want you to feel left out — the more the merrier — or — um — well, you know what I mean 😉

        Really though — very, very interesting! 😀

    • It can’t be an easy job, can it – standing out in the elements like that, all year, Almost makes me grateful I was born a human creature 🙂

    • Thanks, Chèvrefeuille. One of the elements I especially like about haiku is how the scene can shift back and forth depending on how the lines are read 🙂
