Charlotte Digregorio published this poem for the Daily Haiku: November 8, 2018. It was her good idea to create a senryu from one of my tanka.

I will share both poems in this post, so you can read both versions. The poems go well with the new year soon, and the themes of my blog.

birds perch
in sheltering branches –

“Each of us is called . . .” Luci Shaw

“Each of us is called to cultivate beauty, knowing that as artists, and as those with whom we share our creative gifts, we become more whole and healed in that sharing of beauty.”

From Psalm 104

Psalm 104: 1 – 2

“Bless the Lord, O my soul.  O Lord my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.

Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain”

This is the poetry of the King James Version.
