Senryu – Prune Juice

 

psychologist
exchanging my childhood
for a better one

 

full flower moon . . .
I watch his inner
liberal grow

 

22 year-old-malt
the relativity
of age

2018 ukiaHaiku Festival Contest

 

daffodils
the spring
in my step

Martha Magenta

 

“Comments made by our Judge: Michael Dylan Welch
This simple and straightforward poem celebrates spring – not just the
time of year but the joy and energy it can give us. The wordplay of
“spring” works well to convey the time of year as well as a feeling of
energetic bounciness.”
