Haiku + Senryu

Haiku is a seasonal, reverent celebration of a subject (nature or people) trying to make a feeling.
Senryu tends to have a victim and may be humorous or irreverant trying to make a point.
- paraphrased from Michael Dylan Welch's Graceguts

Greed




Greed's a fool's rainbow
A sirenic melody
Like pseudo delights 

Greed's a form of theft 
Dogged theft from a spirit
Your spirit perhaps

Carpe Diem ~ A Daily Haiku Meme~ Greed

For many men, the acquisition of wealth does not end their troubles, it only changes them.

Spiritual theft
Down that slippery slope lies
Material theft

in awe of your words in the first haiku. sirenic melody - very pretty

about greed as a form of theft -- i agree..the maldistribution of wealth that deprives others of their right to enjoy what nature has intended for them to have.
well-penned ^^

happy valentines day :)

Yes, greed can lull one into false delights but inflicting sufferings along the way on others, which is bad! Nice capture Gemma!
