a senryu still has to have a single moment that's focused on, like in haiku, and not be a philosophical generalization. it's a pretty short poem, though. for senryu, pick ONE of those 'timeless memories' to give the reader an implied sense of wonder

I particularly like the last line. Interesting concept.

It is a beautiful rainbow of memories shinning in a sky much in need of them. Thank you for sharing this with us... and brightening our skies.

The last line rolls off the tongue beautifully!

Those memories can be so vibrant that they help draw attention away from those that are dark. Beautifully crafted!

An excellent reminder to us all to be thankful for those precious moments... well captured in this for sure.

Ah, the ability to see what the sun can give us after a storm... when we need our "colours" the most.

Yes, those moments always registers timeless momories, beautiful associations, capable of providing positive charge.
