Senryu and haiku, somewhat similar? There may be some very fine differences for which I have as yet to know. Great take on this!

I love the "replay" bit.. especially when it's a beautiful memory (tune)..

Your few words here have conveyed a world of meaning... wonderful!

Thinking of what it is to make music with a glass and how the tone and tune change as the elixir becomes less and less. Beautiful poem.
