The Porthole Perspective

The Submariners Gaze

Hooking silver spin
Barnacles flowering rose
Tall grass school splashing

Hooking silver spin
Rose flowering barnacles
Tall grass fish fleeting

Hooking silver spin
Flowering rose barnacles
Tall grass deadlight glow

Nice Haiku, Susan
It is nice to gaze at the silver spinner as you cast into the deep waters of tall grass and rose shaped barnacles, hoping not to get them caught.
Very well worded......Mae

I agree with the comments here and notefully, Franks. Good Luck friend in the contest.

Such stillness and clarity. Beautiful piece here. Relaxing and thoughtfilled.

Hooking silver spin is a great line:) -Alan

I think these can comfortably qualify as Haiku, now. *cough, cough* I'm not too sure where the edits were made, but now the senryu element is gone. Which is good. To my ears, at any rate. Unless there is a subtlety which I am missing. The play on words and positioning is also noted and appreciated. Not quite to the point where I can indulge in Walt's silence of admiration (that would not be Pen, at all! loll, but better stated that you not be greeted with a wall of esoteric silence. No dis to Walt, of course. ^_^ Is just Pen, playing practical pleasures. ^_~

Frank :)

well i think your senryu is fun and i've been playing around with doing a column of them to read is have done a very nice job of connecting your 5/7/5...the haiku and senryu are becoming my favorite poems to write...thanks for sharing...
