Your Senryu seems to be fine, but are you of the male gender that you carry a torch for Diana the moon goddess?
Uh-ooh! I forgot--is the moon masculine in Italian as he/she would be in German? Just googled: "The modern English poetic usage when personifying the sun and moon has taken up the French or Romance gender for sol (masculine) and luna (feminine), instead of retaining the Germanic grammatical genders where the sun is feminine and the moon masculine." Oh, nevermind. You've got yourself a fine senryu, and I have forgotten to take my meds last night. Thank you, Teddy

Good morning Sir, no I'm still a lady but I am a fan of the great moon who for me is also Lady, I am very pleased you have enjoyed this little piece, now the season is changing the sky has become even more night.

Thank you...Teddy

Dear Teddy, what a lovely senryu about the moon, perfect! I've always known the moon to be feminine and the sun masculine.
I also love the moon, so it's with pleasure that I read your senryu. All the best, moon lover.

The pleasure is all mine, glad to know you are a moon lover too.

Thank you...Teddy
