Wordles with Senryu – August 19, 2015

Whirling

Whirling

separate the world
between the soft and the hard
then start bickering

in this lonely bed
awake – awaiting to hear
the sound of his breath

the frayed cord
signals that the mast will fall
the albatross laughs

to fall asleep
perhaps to dream … ah
wasn’t that Hamlet?
