Dear Patricia,

Those that know the difference between a haiku and a senryu are limited in numbers, to say the least.

I forever ponder the nature of causality between abuse and hate.

The last fortnight the American media was fixated on a story which, at its margins (sadly, rather than at its reported heart) had a woman who suffered racial abuse and, ultimately, grew up with a desire to help, not hate, in her heart.

I would much rather if we could all agree that red faced rather than red-handed was the natural ending for your senryu, but, that is not the way our world is.

Nice work; you obviously engaged me.

Tschuess,
Chris

beautiful senryu.. i'm afraid i'm one who falls in the category that Chris mentioned. if u hadnt told it was a senryu, i'd have thought it was a haiku..!

thanks for sharing!

Hi, Patsy, I've come by via Wordless Wednesday. You have captured my attention with your photo and senryu. I look forward to exploring your blog more.

I like to hope that people who have been taught to hate and fear others will one day allow themselves to recognize they are and stop. Some moments, or with some people, I have heavy doubts.
