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

See, I've been biting my tongue on the haiku/senryu thing. I mentioned it to you ... hrm. More than two years ago. Figured you were just trying to avoid confusion on the Ranker, as 97% of people don't know the difference.

:heh: Yeah. I knew it a while ago. And I still knew a proper haiku dealt with seasons/nature, but that wasn't making itself loud enough in my head.

On the ranker, definitely trying to avoid confusion (is there a term that encompasses both haiku and senryu?). Well, and I just don't ... fiddle ... with the ranker much anymore.

Sorry for the anguish. :)
