Winter comes senryu

Winter comes again.
Cats wander, disconsolate;
fish will comfort them.

Flannel sheets come out
replacing satin and silk.
Penance in Advent
hiver 002
Down by the river--
ice on paths, not in water
Yet.  Maybe next week?

From Songs of Persepolis.

  • Wishing for Warm Water Senryu

    Caribbean Dreams waylay us in deep winter but the snow prevails (from Crepuscular Idyll)

  • Escape to the Plaza Haiku
