Haiku is to poetry as espresso is to coffee.

Thanks tat and bigshoulders. I often read and write haiku (or senryu, which is technically what this one is) when doing laundry, a chore I took over when I retired from fulltime teaching a few years ago. Now I'm completely retired, which inspired a tanka I'm about to post.

Thanks floots. This is the direct result of writing haiku/senryu in the laundry room.
