__In  their  season, it seems  they  are  always  'on guard'  along  the  country  roadways,  fence lines,  and  cottage  fronts.   Salute_!

__Short summer nights;  now,  as  bats forage the night sky (skies?) for sustenance,   is  night  'flies'   a  noun,  or  is  night,  'flies'  an intransitive verb?

__Happy Father's Day_!  To every Mom and their children, to my wife, my children and grand children, thanks for putting up with us... all these years_!  Smiles_!

Comment,  left at Zen Speug. (slight edit)   Nature's Opera is... all seasons, thus, senryu.

__ I saw a treadle operated potter's wheel that used the wind as an alternate power source.   The builder's cat dozed on its still spindle, and my imagination quickly spun this into my scribble book.   _m

__Pompously, I suppose,  I once knew the differences between haiku and senryu, but now it seems there may be no differences;  ignorance then,  has become my acquired indifference.

One Sonnet form, as some would argue against; I scribbled this "Found" and others... long ago.


I stand apart, watching through your sorrow,
With tears at the loss of a love begone.
You wander that circle, as you are drawn,
To that lonely search for your tomorrow;
With your heart so full, your mind so fallow,
In your eyes the lost hope of new love's dawn,
You silently stand, as a misplaced pawn.
This a deep search, to forestall your barrow.

With offered touch, another's  lonely goal;
I see her full glean, her deepened mire,
Beyond this surge of her lone desire.
She sends her full heart to your lonely soul,
And in joyful tone,  it sates your fire.
With her song of love, the steeple bells toll.

Often,  to explain is pointless; this,  is  a  'stupid / smart'  senryu.  Smiles_!
