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.

Youngling




to swim with life's flow
a youngling means a freedom
ungroomed and unchained


NOTE
The photo above (December 2011) is a young seal pup that stayed awhile with Mum near Anthony's Nose
- a rocky ridge near Dromana beach on Port Phillip Bay.

'Youngling means a freedom ungroomed and unchained'
It is so true, and therefore I always wish that I was still a kid!!

Freedom is needed, but proper guidance is required too :-)
