yesterday, waking up

It's been brought to my attention that I've been posting senryu, not haiku. I'd completely forgotten that there was a distinction (in fact, if you'd asked me I would have said a senryu was a tanka and not known what a tanka was; and even now I was confusing a tanka and a renga (corrected), though that can partially be blamed on just waking up (and limited exposure). :)

insomnia lurks
fear that something will be missed
I sit and reload

dreams of basketball
turtle swallows star player
student eats master

{{ the master happened to be a small dragon (or a cricket?); everyone else looked on in horror. I made the turtle puke (with my hands), but there was nothing in there but bile and empty turtle shells (the size of sake glasses). I left the (gated) court looking for somewhere to wash my hands. Woke up not quite wanting to touch my alarm (which apparently I had set for PM instead of AM, so it's a good thing I woke up before it). }}

#rejection from @outshine both thoughtful and thorough. Looking forward to their reopen Jul 6. Someone remind me? #writing #twitfic
