Strictly speaking ben both are terse verse Neither complies to the syllable count but none the less both have great impact ivor
Another excellent piece, Sir Ben...Love it
Both excellent poems Ben and it is good to see a haiku and senryu side by side to note the difference of the forms. I can relate to the longer days as with daylight saving, we have heaps of time to catch those morning melodies. I will go for a look at moonset too and see what beams there! 10 Karin
