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

In the spirit of Chiyo-ni...




sweet scented blossoms
wealth for the rich and the poor
in their times of need

~

springtime's flow'ring branch
perfumes
winter's sludge and blues

~


Linking to:
Carpe Diem ~ A Daily Haiku Meme ~
In the spirit of
Chiyo-ni
the flowering branch of the plum
gives its scent
to him who broke it off

brilliant! words filled with truth. nature really does treat people equally, rich or poor, we are all offered the same privileges of enjoying the fragrance of a flower, or the warmth of the sun... lovely..

In this world of "things," I so much like the idea of blossoms as wealth.

Wow, what a gorgeous thought: "wealth for the rich and poor." Exquisite haiku, Gemma.

It rains on the just and the unjust.

I look forward to Spring.
This is the worst day of Winter so far.
Snow, wind, cold, hazardous driving.

A fine day to stay home and think.

Cheers!

Both are wonderful, but first one gets my vote.

The first one is a beautiful and very human thought. Very good.
