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

I feel...I wish...


Young girl in the recent Westernport Festival parade at Hastings on the Mornington Peninsula.
Her naval outfit suggests that she represents someone in her family who is connected to nearby HMAS Cerberus.


I feel a child's gaze
Locked into more than fanfare
I wish I could see


Linking to:
Haiku My Heart Friday
Haiku Friday

Let us not, in the eagerness of our haste to educate, forget all the ends of education.

Seeing again through the eyes of a child is a rare gift, indeed!

The young child certainly seems to be seeing something that no one else sees!
