    Beautiful work Michelle! This is a lovely senryu.

  2. Michelle

    Thanks so much for your kind words Laurence.
    Stay inspired!

  3. Editor

    I absolutely agree – this is a wonderful senryu. Excellently composed. And it has such a wonderful pun in it as well.

  4. Chen-ou Liu

    Michelle!, I agree with the above comments. The style of your haiku echoes Dylan Welch’s words: “haiku isn’t the least amount of words used, but the least amount necessary.”

    Thanks also for your kinds words Dick and Chen-ou. I’m glad Michael would approve. Still hoping to see his Tundra reappear, so I can submit again :) .
    Stay inspired!

    Yeah, I have been wanting to submit to Tundra too. But alas, it is still on hiatus. At least we can dream…
